    Process piping

    Converting trees into pulp requires many steps. Some steps are mechanical and many are chemical. Due to efficiencies from chemical recovery, producing pulp and raw goods for paper products is highly environmentally safe and cost-effective. Moving carefully measured amounts of white liquor into large tanks known as digestors is the work of process piping. Back liquor is an intermediate step where wood fibers undergo further delignification. In the final step of the chemical processing of wood fibers, lime is added as well as heat to convert the byproduct from green liquor into white liquor. This entire process is known as the Kraft recovery process which is only possible through complex process piping.

    Our engineering team uses computer-aided design (CAD) to design systems ahead of implementation. Our teams do pipe prefabrication to the extent it can be done ahead of an installation or repair job. Typically, on-site fabrication is also necessary.

    Large tank installation

    Midsouth is known across the Southeast for its machine moving and rigging services. The knowledge we have in this area makes it easy for us to move large tanks into position for installation. We can install large tanks as part of the initial plant construction or replace broken tanks. We can also accommodate customers who need storage area for large pieces of equipment while they await buyer instructions or insurance review.

    Sorting and Conveyance Equipment

    In the manufacturing process of pulp, the first step is typically converting logs into wood chips. Debarking machinery is used for this along with industrial wood chippers. The pieces are moved through various sorting machinery using complex conveyance equipment. Our mechanical contractors not only install conveyance equipment for many industries, but we also maintain it. Avoid costly downtime, learn more about our preventative maintenance.

    Safety is paramount in everything we do.
