Abstract:
Author- Dr. Mahendra Patel,
420 pages; 32 chapters, ISBN No: 978-81-923542-4-8; Publ. by Industrypaper, 2013.
Use of ceramic materials in pulp and paper manufacturing has augmented enormously in the last two decades mainly because of their intrinsic abilities to combat the harsh environments. Some of the ceramic materials available now have strength as high as that of metals and the conventional metals and alloys are slowly being replaced by ceramics wherever possible. Among the ceramic products, alumina, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, sialon, zircon, ceramic composites and coatings as well as ceramic tiles, bricks, cement, glass and refractory with thermal spray coating and future of ceramics in pulp and paper manufacturing, make the book quite useful and interesting for both paper mills and machine manufacturers as well ceramics industries.

Ceramics in Paper Manufacturing including Advanced and Nano Materials

New Delhi, India | Posted on December 17th, 2012

Advanced and nano ceramics, included in this book, are the new-generation innovative materials to help enhancing energy saving, environmental benefits and material protection. Advanced ceramics such as silicon carbide whiskers, silicon nitride, Sialon, silicon oxynitride, titania and alumina fibres/whiskers using natural plant fibres following to Substrate mechanism with dimensions in micro and nano scale are discussed in one of the sections in this book. One of the chapters is specifically devoted to the production of silicon carbide whiskers and other advanced ceramic materials using agro-residues. Their composites with aluminium metal, polymers and glass, with potential for applications in the pulp and paper mills, are included in another chapter.
Many examples of applications of these advanced and nano ceramics in paper manufacturing are cited. For example, the overall enhancement brought out in the paper machine, is essentially because of possibility of substitution of the ductile metallic parts by ceramics. The paper machine former, press and dryer are presently provided with special ceramic substances. The paper machinery manufacturers find now the ceramic parts and components to be the appropriate materials to address the harsh environments.

Materials based on ceramics find applications right from the raw material preparation to the finishing stages in paper manufacturing. The production process and developments of the three categories of ceramics; traditional, advanced and nano ceramics, are discussed in this book in length.
 
Traditional ceramics such as bricks, tiles, cement, refractory and glass form part of other two sections in this book. Subject of ceramics in paper manufacturing also encompasses the vital issue of recycling the solid wastes, generated from the mills to ceramic products. Pulp and paper mills generate considerable amount of solid waste products namely fibrous sludge, lime sludge, plastic wastes and coal ash. The developments as well as case studies on production of common ceramic materials such as bricks, tiles and cement also form part of the books as these are subject of vital issues for the mills.

This book provides valuable imperatives in commissioning of new plant and in selection of materials for machineries. While the maintenance and instrumentation engineers will be most benefitted on reading this book, it will help in bringing down the cost of maintenance and enhance the quality, productivity and efficiency of the mill, thus going to be very important for the papermakers also. Moreover, the techno-commercial information provided in this book on some of the products of the different machinery manufacturers are likely to help promoting their business and improvising their product profile. The book will be quite useful for Material scientists, interested in having access to application of their products in industries, specially pulp and paper manufacturing.
