Want to Learn About Advanced Inline TDS Measurement Technology for Brown Stock Washing Optimization with Advanced Process Control?

Vaisala sponsored webinar: Advanced Inline TDS Measurement Technology for Brown Stock Washing Optimization with Advanced Process Control webinar, taking place on Tuesday, April 4th 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (ET) will discuss how advanced digital in-line Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) measurement technology together with advanced process control systems can be used to improve brown stock washing process efficiency. Energy, raw materials, chemicals and water consumption reduction and renewable energy use efficiency is playing important role in pulp mill efficiency now and even more in the future.

Field results and success in several different pulp mills in Scandinavia and North America have proved performance of this unique digital solids analyser technology in demanding brown stock washing process conditions. Vaisala K-Patents digital in-line TDS measurement technology have also been successfully used in many other applications in heavy-, strong-, feed- and weak black liquor feed to evaporators, concentrators and recovery boiler firing as well as in dissolving tank green liquor and causticizing control optimization.
