Pulp and paper equipment is basically any piece of machinery used to convert cellulose fibre into a wide variety of pulps, papers and paperboards. Most of this cellulose fibre comes from forest resources. Other sources include wastepaper, linen and cotton rags. Modern papermaking is a large multinational industry, characterized by high speed machines and complex systems of control for manufacturing thousands of products vital to education, communications, marketing, packaging and construction. With all of these machines, the pulp and paper industry is one, if not the largest, consumers of energy. With the right equipment, this high consumption of energy could be a thing of the past.
