Monochloramine (MCA) for Paper Packaging

The power of stability across your paper packaging process

As a papermaker, you’re trying to manage your inputs, such as water, OCC and functional chemistries, as well as your outputs – packaging paper and effluent. But there are a number of significant trends in the industry that are affecting this overall dynamic. There’s a drive for decreased water usage based on regulatory requirements and also cost. Rising contamination in recycled OCC is affecting its quality. And there’s a shift to using anaerobic digesters for effluent treatment.

In the face of these trends, we see organizations take various approaches. They’re adding more functional chemistries to drive performance and meet necessary product strength standards.

They’re adding monochloramine for slime control via batch feeding, or so-called slug dosing. And to fight effluent treatment plant microbial growth and upsets, they’re using more nutrients, expending more focus, and increasing testing.
