Ragglestick versus pulp fiber cradles
Pulp Fiber Cradle Separator Failure
It’s a good thing we don’t ship pipe with pulp fiber separators
“Pulp Paper Separator Pipe Packaging Test”
First we stacked 8″ PVC Pipe with the use of Fiber Ragglesticks (pulp fiber cradles).
Pulp Fiber Separator could not hold a
static load of relatively light weight pipe.
Obviously pipe stacking is not a great application for molded pulp fiber separators,
even with PVC pipe which is relatively light weight, compared to steel pipe.
There are many applications molded fiber separators are good for.
Of course, PVC Ragglesticks can also be used for many of those applications, with greater durability.
Fiber cradles have many application, some of which may be better suited to Ragglesticks.
Ragglesticks are more durable, they can last forever, and are reusable.
See This page for applications where ragglesticks have been used where traditionally fiber cradles may have been used previously.
