English term or phrase: broke tower
"Known broke systems have the principle of mixing the broke with water in a pulper located under the paper machine so that the consistency of the stock formed is typically about 3 %. After this the stock is pumped into a broke tower, from where it is taken back to the paper machine either as part of the stock or, in an extreme situation, broke alone is used."

Słownik wskazuje na "brak (maszynowy)", ale ciężko ten termin spotkać i nie do końca mam świadomość, co precyzyjnie oznacza. Z powyższego fragmentu wynika jednak, że może chodzi po prostu o "papier odpadowy"? Czy mimo wszystko waste paper to jednak coś innego niż broke?

Czy tower w tym przypadku będzie po prostu wieżą, czy takie zestawienie słów daje nam w polskiej nomenklaturze zupełnie inną nazwę?

Reference: mill broke

Reference information:
There are three categories of paper that can be used as feedstocks for making recycled paper: mill broke, pre-consumer waste, and post-consumer waste.[1] Mill broke is paper trimmings and other paper scrap from the manufacture of paper, and is recycled in a paper mill. Pre-consumer waste is a material which left the paper mill but was discarded before it was ready for consumer use. Post-consumer waste is material discarded after consumer use, such as old corrugated containers (OCC), old magazines, and newspapers.[1] Paper suitable for recycling is called "scrap paper", often used to produce moulded pulp packaging. The industrial process of removing printing ink from paper fibres of recycled paper to make deinked pulp is called deinking, an invention of the German jurist Justus Claproth.
