Advanced Online Process Analyzers for Pulp Mill Control

This webinar will briefly review the technology and give further details on economic impacts achieved through the installation of rugged process online FT-NIR analyzers when coupled with advanced process control strategies.

With increasing competition worldwide, pulp and paper manufacturers, particularly those in North America, require greater emphasis on cost reduction and increased efficiency and product quality. Optimization must also focus on minimizing chemical and energy consumption, particularly for those mills that could utilize the excess steam to drive turbine for electrical generation, allowing for diversification of revenue stream. To this end, process measurements and control play an important and critical role.
