PulpEye has now reached the milepost of 50 units sold as Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk in Sweden invests in a PulpEye system for pulp analyses online. Bleached and unbleached kraft pulp is produced at the Aspa mill and the PulpEye they have acquired contains modules for determination and measuring of kappa number, brightness, dots and pH.
“We are very pleased to have sold PulpEye unit No. 50,” says Öjvind Sundvall, MD PulpEye. “During the last few years we have seen an ever increasing demand for our analysis equipment for continuous monitoring of pulp quality, irrespective of pulp type. As we cooperate with leading research institutes we have been able to introduce entirely new technique and thus by and by satisfy customers’ need for quick and reliable pulp analyses. That Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk bought PulpEye No. 50 is no coincidence as they have a well-deserved image of embracing new technique in order to be able to be at the forefront.”
“We evaluated a number of alternatives for analysis of pulp online and chose to acquire PulpEye,” says Jonas Pettersson-Hagel, Production Manager Pulp at Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk. “PulpEye has for many years supported our kappa analyser and as we have that experience it was logical to choose PulpEye as our future platform. We have high demands on our specialty pulps which is why our PulpEye contains modules for measuring kappa number, brightness, dots and pH. We are planning to install the whole package with modules, test points and pipes for the samples to the analysis modules during our maintenance break in the autumn.”
“The quality demands on different pulp qualities are ever increasing which means that our customers need to be able to control pulp characteristics through the whole process, from digester to drying, and not only at just a few test points,” says Öjvind Sundvall. “The mills want complete control of the quality and possibilities to, early in the process, spot and correct deviations in different process steps. Our latest orders thus comprises test points covering the customers’ complete fibre lines, which is evidence of their confidence and trust in our technique.”
Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk produces bleached and unbleached hardwood sulphate pulp. This was the first mill in the world to install oxygen bleaching, already 1974 and in 1989 it was also the first mill to be able to offer 100 % chlorine-free sulphate pulp.
