PRODUCTION PROCESS

Our plant follows basic pulping process which is:

          Thermo-chemical, water-intensive process employing mechanical energy and heat, and a suitable amount of food grade chemicals.

Abaca Pulping Process Flow:

COOKING

Delignification, or the removal of lignin is being carried out in this process through chemical reaction intensified by high temperature and pressure in a given/standard period of time.

CYLINDER PRESSING

This process is the extraction and removal of liquor from the pulp stock.

WASHING

Complete removal of black liquor and/or chemical residues is being carried out in this process through the use of sufficient amount of water.

SCREENING

Foreign materials such as plant remnants (twigs, leaves, wood chips), water contaminants, uncooked fiber including sand is being remove in this process using series of vibrating screens, pressure screen, low and high density cleaners.

SHEET-FORMING PROCESS

Pulp slurry is continuously formed into mat using thickener and pressed through series of rolling press for dewatering.

DRYING

Pulp mat undergoes drying threaded through series of dryer cylinders with certain specified temperature requirements to produce the required moisture content.

CUTTING

Dried pulp mat passes through slitter & cutter to attain certain pulp sheet dimension coinciding customer’s requirement.

PACKAGING

Packing of sheeted sheets will start upon completion of a certain weight equivalent to a bale. Batch Numbers and other related product information are included in the shipping marks for each bale.


For each processes, Quality Assurance department conducts quality inspection and evaluation to ensure that each required properties are being met.
