Abstract Distance between stationary and rotating refining plates, gap, has a direct and significant impact on refining power. Gap is almost universally used to control power in low consistency refining operations. The relationship between power and gap are affected by refiner size, pulp type, plate pattern and refining conditions. In this study, a correlation was developed to describe the power–gap relationships at a wide range of refining conditions and furnish. The correlation was developed… CONTINUE READING
