The pulp & paper industry has seen tough times, but the business will still be around for many decades; the product is too much in demand. Those involved in valves for this industry need to understand how the processes work.
Perhaps no manufactured product plays a more significant role in everyday human activity than paper and paper products. Paper provides the means for recording, storing and disseminating most of today’s information. Even though people have extolled the coming of the paperless society, it has not yet arrived. Humans still print e-mails and other correspondence and information they get from the paperless communication channels of the computer and the Internet. And beyond that, paper is the most widely used wrapping and packaging material as well as a critical component today in everyday life. From drywall to napkins to office supplies, paper is used for many purposes, and that situation won’t change for a long, long time.
