A comparison between highly depithed and conventionally depithed bagasse pulp
Rainey, Thomas J. (2012) A comparison between highly depithed and conventionally depithed bagasse pulp. Appita Journal, 65(2), pp. 178-183.
Sugarcane bagasse pulp normally has high dewatering resistance and poor strength properties. In a previous study it was shown that highly depithed bagasse chemical pulp has excellent dewatering properties which may improve the production rate of bagasse based tissue, paper and board. In this study pulp properties of this highly depithed bagasse pulp were tested and compared favourably with regular depithed bagasse pulp. In addition to better dewatering rates, the pulp yield, tear strength and water retention value seemingly improved. Whilst a slight reduction in burst, tensile and short-span compression strengths occurred, they were still comparable to values reported for a regular bagasse pulp.
