St Cuthbert's Mill
The value of “precise, consistent and accurate pumping” for a UK paper manufacturer is explored in a new documentary-style video by Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions. The new video – the latest in a series of filmed case studies – was launched on YouTube and other social channels this week.
The new video features St Cuthbert’s Mill, a master papermaker with a heritage that can be traced back to the 1700s. Based near Wells in Somerset, the company specialises in the manufacture of high-quality artists’ papers.
The video explores the strengths of WMFTS’s Qdos pump technology for metering substances such as pigment and starch. An interview with Paul Tremlett, the company’s Shift Manager explains the contribution Qdos makes to reliable production and minimum downtime. “For us to have consistency and a quality product going out the door, we need to have trust in what we use. We need quality, and they (WMFTS) provide it,” he says. He goes on to explain that with approximately 80 tons of paper produced every month, using a continental shift pattern across 24/7 operations, reliability of technology is vital to operations.
Under two minutes in length, the video will be of particular interest to production engineers working in the field of paper and board manufacturing – as well as those in other industries where accurate and repeatable chemical dosing is vital.
“It’s very clear from the video how important it is for a high-quality product business such as St Cuthbert’s Mill to have the most reliable technology partners. We share their commitment for excellence and quality, and this shines out in the video case study. There’s no doubt that this kind of content is a powerful way to capture and share examples of best practice with the wider world, said Rachel Pallett – Regional Director EMEA at WMFTS.”
