The white liquor plant (WLP) in Três Lagoas, Brazil was constructed with Laitex to meet the highest environmental standards. Laitex supplied material handling system for the white liquor plant. The project included chain conveyors, 57 meters high chain elevators, lime crushers, screw conveyors and slide gate valves.
The new white liquor plant offers top-class performance in all process conditions due to its robust material handling system. The system enables the plant to achieve high availability and reliability, thus minimizing alkaline loss and waste.
Laitex’s delivery was part of a larger project for the entire pulp mill in Três Lagoas. In total, the production capacity of the mill reached 3.25 million tons per year, making it one of the largest pulp producers in the world.
The new white liquor plant consists of a single-line recausticizing plant and two lime kilns. Laitex designed and supplied conveyor system for dregs, lime mud and burned lime handling.
The material handling system enabled the plant’s energy-efficient operation, high capacity, long-lasting uptime and reaching environmental standards.
