Pulp and paper
Business area– Pulp and paper
Somas has developed and manufactured valves since the late 1950’s. Back then the sole focus was valves and other equipment specifically designed for the pulp and paper industry. On the whole, this field and our continued work with clients within it has been very important for us. It has helped to shape our now traditional product catalogue which is renowned for the use of acid-proof stainless steel in components that come into contact with a large number of different corrosive or other potentially damaging substances.
Pulp mills offer a wide range of different applications that are excellent for Somas valves. Many of said applications require special valve materials able to handle the corrosive environment. Somas has solutions for your specific needs, both in terms of design and materials. There are also several other areas in a pulp mill that have a potential need for Somas valves, including drain-control and water-inlets.
Paper machines have a near infinite need for high performance Somas valves. Be it for flow-control of substances with or without fibers or steam. Somas also offers different valve-seats that can be used in different areas of the entire machine.
SomBook® is a tool where we have collected our many years of experience about valve options, material options as well as other important information about the valves we suggest for specific applications.
