Wetend Technologies acquires AntiScaling technology of Ceresto for In-Line PCC™ process

<< Back to Breaking News

Wetend Technologies Ltd has acquired AntiScaling technology with product ownership and knowhow from Ceresto Oy for In-Line PCCTM process. The agreement secures the availability of anti-scaling technology for customers of Wetend and unites knowledge and expertise of the companies for long term customer support.

The acquired electrical AntiScaling technology is used to prevent filler crystallization on protected areas and to provide excellent long term process efficiency and runnability of In-Line PCC process. It can also be used for several other types of scaling deposits generated on the inner walls of a process pipe caused by aggressively reacting chemicals. Accordingly, the system can be used for many scaling sensitive additives to safeguard cleanliness, runnability and efficiency. Ceresto has been one of the few developers and suppliers of a full scale in-line reactor anti-scaling system for paper/board and process industry.

In-Line PCC™ is a novel straight forward precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) filler production process developed by Wetend Technologies. It consists of TrumpJet® Flash Mixing Reactor integrated into paper/board machine process in-situ. The key benefits of In-Line PCC process are : extremely fast crystallization reaction, high quality filler crystals, powerful fiber loading effect, very high retention of filler, excellent strength and optical properties with first-class formation of paper or board.

The agreement between Ceresto and Wetend will re-inforce and complete In-Line PCC Reactor technology package of Wetend and offer additional potential to develop the product and knowhow for competitiveness and long term customer support and benefits. The newly signed contract includes also laboratory and pilot testing equipment and gives opportunity to run trials at paper/board mill in relevant process conditions for new applications.

The technology has been already in use in commercially with excellent results.
