Oxygen may be used alone or as a complement to air when oxidizing white liquor. In several mills, oxygen supplied by Linde is used for white liquor oxidation. The oxygen is used as a complement to air. By adding oxygen to existing white liquor oxidation equipment, increased capacity can be achieved without any larger investments.
Benefits with adding oxygen to existing air oxidation equipment include:
- Increased production of oxidized white liquor
- Use of existing equipment
- Low investment cost
- Simple installation
