New nozzle location for vessel used in manufacture of pulp.
Typically in a vessel containing cellulosic fibrous material, such as a digester, impregnation vessel, or similar vessel, liquor is introduced into the vessel by nozzles around the circumference of the vessel or it comes in with the cellulosic fibrous material. This idea is to use a center pipe to introduce liquor (black or white, or other) into the impregnation vessel. The location of the central pipe discharge is such that the liquor flowing through the discharge entering the impregnation vessel is above the chip level. The attached drawing shows this invention.
