Tech/Engineering - Paper / Paper Manufacturing
English term or phrase: sweetener
Hello, could you help me with this term? I understand its meaning but cannot find an Italian equivalent.

Here is a bit of context:

"A disc filter is used to recover fibres. The white water to be filtered is sucked through wire-cowered hollow discs partly submerged in a trench, but the degree of separation for fine materials would be too poor if only the uncovered wire were used as filter medium. Additional "SWEETENER" pulp is added to the disc filter headbox. A suitable stock component (with low filtration resistance) is used for this purpose."

Thank you!
