  • LOADING & HANDLING OF ROLLED CELLULOSE HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM LOADING & HANDLING OF PAPER ROLLS?

    Rolled Cellulose from Coosa Pines, AL.

    Resolute Forest Products’ Coosa Pines mill, located on Alabama’s Coosa River, began operations in 1950 as a joint venture between Kimberly-Clark and newspaper publishers. The mill produced newsprint for publishers located predominantly in the Southeastern United States.

    Fluff pulp was added to its product offering in 1976 with the installation of a new kraft line, recovery boiler and pulp dryer. In 2000, a $63 million “cluster rule” upgrade to the pulp mill was finalized.

    The facility now produces kraft pulp used worldwide and is considered a leading manufacturer of pulp used in tissue and absorbent consumer products.

    Differences in Packaging

    July 10, 2019Loading & Handling Rolled Cellulose

    Paper Grades Wrapped in kraft / Vapo. Depending on grade and size – up to 3 turns of wrap. Inside/Outside headers. One application of wrap.

    Cellulose Stretch wrapped.

    Depending on the size of the roll – up to 34 turns of wrap.

    No headers. Two applications of wrap.

    Axial Wrapping & Radial Wrapping

    July 10, 2019Loading & Handling Rolled Cellulose

    Axial Wrapping The roll is being rotated

    radially as the stretch wrap is applied end to end by an orbital roll of stretch wrap.

    Radial Wrapping The roll is rotated on the bilge

    as the stretch wrap is applied around the belly of the roll as with paper rolls and kraft wrap.

    Depending on size, a roll receives between 30 – 34 turns of stretch wrap.

    Differences in Handling

    July 10, 2019Loading & Handling Rolled Cellulose

    Roll weights are comparable.  Similar lift trucks are used.  Similar clamps are used.

    Roll characteristics are different.  Paper grades produce a relatively

    hard roll.  Fluff pulp produces a relatively soft,

    compressible roll.

    Wraps react differently.  Kraft is relatively easy to damage.  Kraft has a lower coefficient of

    friction.  Stretch wrap is hard to damage.  Stretch wrap has a high COF.

    Differences in Railcar Loading – Vehicle Preparation

    Premium Paper vs. Rolled Cellulose

    Wall preparation  Similarly, both use wall dunnage for

    product protection, not lengthwise void filler.  Paper cars – prevent damage that

    could result in linear footage loss.  Narrower/Thicker dunnage.

     Pulp cars – prevent damage that could result in contamination.  Wider/Thinner dunnage.

    Floor Preparation – After Cleaning  Paper cars – None.  Pulp cars – Application of one layer

    of fluff pulp.  Prevents bottom contamination.

    Overall Preparation –  No loose roof paint or rust

    Customer Expectations

    No Package Damages No Out-of-Roundness No Crushed Cores No Wet Rolls No Contamination

    Physical or odors

  • Why is Contamination Critical?

    Contamination can be:

    – A real safety risk for consumers

    – A perceived risk for consumers

    Either puts billion dollar brands at risk

  • Louisiana – The Sportsman’s Paradise

     More types of snakes than any other state in the union  More alligators than all the other southern states combined  Panthers, bears…you get the point.

    This creature strikes fear into the hearts of everyone at Coosa Pines from the mill manager to janitor.

  • Ladybugs

    July 10, 2019Loading & Handling Rolled Cellulose 16

    Perennial threat to rolled fluff pulp every fall in the Southern US. Must be manually exterminated from vehicles (vacuum cleaner). Stretch wrapped rolls can be cleaned if the pulp isn’t contaminated.

  • Ladybugs

    July 10, 2019Loading & Handling Rolled Cellulose 17

    Plastic mesh has to be installed over any ventilation ports in containers and railcars to keep the ladybugs out.

  • Rolled Cellulose vs. Paper Rolls

    So what is the take-away:

     Wrapping medium is different  Wrapping application is different  Handling equipment is similar  Vehicle preparation is different  Customer expectations are greater
