Besides of wood cellulose, Cotton linters are the biggest and most important source
of Chemical Pulp. Compared with wood cellulose, cotton linters offer significant
advantages, such as higher purity, higher viscosity, higher brightness and lower content
of hemi-celluloses. These characteristics make purified linters the ideal cellulose raw
when high quality products, such as tissue, gazes, high quality paper, nitro
and cellulose ethers, are to be manufactured.
Cotton Linters Pulp looks very white and is free from oil, dirt and other
extraneous matter. Apart from physical verification cotton linters pulp is subjected
to various chemical tests to know the content of Alpha Cellulose, Moisture, Acidity,
Mineral Matter, Ether Soluble Matter, Copper Number, Linter Dust, Iron etc. Tests to
determine Solubility, Brightness, Hydrophility, Sulfuric Luminosity, Viscosity,
Conductivity, Tear Factor, Wet strength, Klem absorbance with water etc., are also
conducted if required, depending on the end use of the pulp.
