Study on Foamed Buffer Material with the Residues of Wheat Straw Pulping
The residues from wheat straw pulping mainly include uncooked chips and fiber bundles. In order to achieve high quality pulp, the residues require removal from the system. It was not necessary that the residues were re-cooked because of its high contents of non-cellulosic constituent. The achievement of low density foamed buffer material with the residues of wheat straw pulping would make the second pollution problem of the residues be solved, and achieve a replacer of foamed plastic material. The paper discussed the producing techniques of foamed buffer material with the residues of wheat straw pulping. The result showed that the best foamed properties of the residues were achieved with proper dosage of natural bonding agent like wheat flour, inorganic foamed agent, crosslink agent, and proper foamed temperature. The density and compression of foamed buffer material with the residues of wheat straw pulping were achieved with 60 kg /m3 and 60 kPa respectively at the optimum foaming condition.
