pilot2_000NC State has a flexible array of pilot equipment available for pulp processing and stock preparation. In one facility, pulp can be made down, bleached or otherwise chemically treated, washed or thickened, screened, centrifugally cleaned, and refined. Clients may ship in their own pulp in the form of market pulp, wetlap, drylap, or slurries. Pulps may also be generated on site chemically (using the rotary globe digester), mechanically (using the 3 ton/day Sunds pilot plant), or via recycling. The final product may be formed into paper on the pilot fourdrinier, wet- or dry-lapped on the fourdrinier, or collected in drums or other containers from dewatering on the drum washer or screw press.
