Valve Selection in Pulp and Paper Operations

Industry Expert Todd Greer, Pulp & Paper Industry Manager of DeZURIK, writes an informative article that appeared in Valve Magazine. Todd states, "The world's paper use has changed dramatically and so have the mills and machines that produce a widening array of paper and packaging products. The right valves often are not those with lower initial costs, but rather those that provide the lowest cost of ownership over the life of the valve.

  • Cost and application considerations
  • The different processes of mills and machines
  • What valves make good choices
