Valued at USD519 billion in 2019, the pulp and paper market is expected to reach USD680 billion by 20271. As this rapid growth continues, plant operators are doubling down on safety standards. Fire protection is a priority. Paper dust is highly combustible, leading to the risk of dust explosions at manufacturing facilities. Operators of a paper pulp mill in eastern Canada recognized that their facility needed enhanced fire protection. The existing system consisted of a vertical turbine pump however facility managers were looking for more comprehensive protection that would meet the future demands of the mill and the peace of mind that it would bring.
