PulpEye No. 50 bought by Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk

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.

Jonas Pettersson-Hagel, Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk, and Öjvind Sundvall, PulpEye, confirm the purchase of PulpEye No.50 together with colleagues from Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk and PulpEye.

Jonas Pettersson-Hagel, Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk, and Öjvind Sundvall, PulpEye, confirm the purchase of PulpEye No.50 together with colleagues from Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk and PulpEye.

“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.

– Det är fantastiskt roligt att vi nu sålt vår femtionde PulpEye enhet, säger Öjvind Sundvall, VD PulpEye i en kommentar. Vi har under de senaste åren märkt en allt starkare efterfrågan på våra analysatorer för kontinuerlig uppföljning av massakvaliteten, oavsett typ av massa. Genom våra samarbeten med ledande forskningsinstitut har vi kunnat introducera helt ny teknik för att successivt täcka kundernas behov av snabba och pålitliga massaanalyser. Att just Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk har köpt vår femtionde PulpEye är roligt eftersom man har en välförtjänt image av att ta till sig ny teknik för att kunna ligga i framkant.

– Efter att ha utvärderat olika alternativ för analys av massa online, valde vi att köpa PulpEye, säger Jonas Pettersson-Hagel, Produktionschef Massa vid Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk. PulpEye har under många år supportat vår kappaanalysator och med den erfarenheten var det logiskt att välja PulpEye som vår framtida plattform. Vi har höga krav på våra specialmassor och därför är vår PulpEye försedd med moduler för mätning av kappatal, ljushet, prickar och pH. Vi beräknar att hela paketet med moduler, provpunkter och ledningar för proverna till analysmodulerna kommer att installeras under höststoppet.

– I takt med att kvalitetskraven på olika massakvaliteter stiger vill våra kunder kunna hålla kontroll på massaegenskaperna genom hela processen, från kokeri till torkmaskin, och inte bara på några få punkter, fortsätter Öjvind Sundvall. Bruken vill ha full kontroll på kvalitetsläget och möjligheter att tidigt i processen se och korrigera avvikelser i olika processteg. Våra senaste order omfattar därför provpunkter som täcker kundernas hela fiberlinjer, vilket visar att man har förtroende för, och litar på, vår teknik.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa bruk tillverkar blekt och oblekt långfibrig sulfatmassa. Man var först i hela världen med att installera syrgasblekning redan 1974. År 1989 blev bruket också först i världen med att erbjuda helt klorfri sulfatpappersmassa.

PulpEye Vessel in presented in Celulose & Papel

In an article with the headline “Joint Transformation” the Brazilian pulp and paper magazine Celulose & Papel presents PulpEye Vessel, which was launched last year.

Read the article

Vessel cells exist in hardwood pulp. These cells are often relatively intact in the pulp process and can have a negative impact on pulp quality. They can reduce print quality by acting like flakes or not take ink the same way as the surrounding fibres. Dust problems can also occur due to vessel elements coming loose during printing. PulpEye Vessel is an interesting module in particular for pulp producers producing eucalyptus pulp.

Press Release: PulpEye has delivered DDA No. 100

DDA number 100

John F Bujold, Platform Launch Manager NA, Pulp and Paper (left) and Mark Laurint, Applications Engineer Retention/Drainage/Clarification, both from Solenis, with the certificate showing that Solenis bought DDA tester No. 100.

Solenis LLC recently purchased Dynamic Drainage Analyzer (DDA) No. 100 from PulpEye.  The DDA is a dynamic drainage tester which gives drainage values comparable to drainage in a wire section. The tester is used by paper and board producers as well as chemical and filler suppliers around the world.

With the aid of the DDA, drainage conditions for different pulp mixtures, refining levels, chemicals and filler additives, etc. can be studied. Optimal drainage and retention are important parameters for paper production. Both productivity and quality are improved with correct amounts of chemicals at the right place in stock preparation. Studies of drainage for different stock mixtures with different additives and their respective effects can quickly be carried out without disturbing production.

“We have customers all over the world using our DDA in production as well as in development projects,” says Öjvind Sundvall, Managing Director, PulpEye. “We are pleased to have delivered more than 100 DDA testers with more orders pending. Last year we launched the DDA 5, the latest version of our dynamic drainage analyzer with much success due to its number of new, even more efficient, drainage tests.”

“Solenis uses the tester for wet end chemistry studies at their customers in order to optimize retention, a characteristic which affects product quality as well as economy for paper and board producers,” stated John Bujold, Platform Launch Manager, NA Pulp and Paper, Solenis LLC.

DDA 5 has a compact design and is equipped with a variety of new features including retention via a turbidity sensor; drainage rate can be determined for selected time spans and chemical dosage is automated. Equipment cleaning is carried out automatically after each analysis allowing more analyses to be performed per hour compared to previous versions. All input and presentation of the results are done through a new, user-friendly interface.

PulpEye har levererat den hundrade DDA-mätaren

100 DDA från PulpEye

John F Bujold, Platform Launch Manager NA, Pulp and Paper t.v. och Mark Laurint, Applications Engineer Retention/Drainage/Clarification, båda Solenis, med certifikatet som visar att Solenis blev köparen av den hundrade DDA-mätaren.

Solenis i USA blev genom köpet av ytterligare en DDA 5, användaren av den hundrade DDA-mätaren från PulpEye. DDA, eller Dynamic Drainage Analyzer, är en dynamisk avvattningsmätare som ger avvattningsvärden jämförbara med verklig avvattning på ett viraparti. Mätaren används av pappers- och kartongtillverkare, liksom leverantörer av kemikalier och fyllnadsmedel, över hela världen.

Med hjälp av den kan avvattningsförhållanden studeras för olika massablandningar, malningsnivåer, tillsatser av kemikalier och fyllmedel med mera. Optimal avvattning och retention är viktiga parametrar vid papperstillverkning. Rätt kemikaliedosering på rätt punkt i mälderiet höjer både produktivitet och kvalitet. Genom avvattningsmätningar av verkliga mäldblandningar kan tillsatser göras och deras effekter snabbt studeras utan att störa produktionen.

– Vi har kunder i hela världen vilka använder vår DDA i både ordinarie produktion och i utvecklingsprojekt, säger Öjvind Sundvall, VD PulpEye. Att vi nu passerat hundra levererade DDA-mätare känns fantastiskt bra och vi har ytterligare leveranser på gång. Ifjol lanserades DDA 5, den senaste versionen av vår dynamiska avvattningsmätare. Den nya modellen har rönt ett stort intresse genom att den har ett antal nya finesser för effektivare avvattningsmätningar.

– Solenis använder mätaren för att hos sina kunder bland annat göra studier av våtändeskemin för att optimera retentionen, en egenskap som påverkar både produktkvalitet och ekonomi hos pappers- och kartongtillverkare, säger John Bujold, Platform Launch Manager, NA Pulp and Paper, Solenis LLC.

DDA 5, har en kompakt design och är försedd med en rad nyheter som att retentionen fås automatiskt med hjälp av en turbiditetssensor. Avvattningshastigheten kan presenteras för valda tidsintervall under analysen. Kemikaliedoseringen sker automatiskt. Genom att utrustningen rengörs automatiskt efter varje analys kan betydligt fler analyser än tidigare göras per timme. All inmatning och resultatpresentation sker med ett nytt användarvänligt gränssnitt.

New module from PulpEye for faster calibration of online consistency sensors

Based on a customer request, PulpEye launches a new module, ConsistencyEye, for faster measurements and calibration of sensors for different process streams. This method is particularly suitable for measurements of low consistency streams, e.g. in paper and board machines’ stock preparation departments.
ConsistencyEye
Today, there is no quick way to measure consistency of different fibre streams for calibration of consistency sensors. Usually the measurements are done manually, which takes time and the result may be influenced by how the measurement is done.

“The module is of interest to any mill with many consistency sensors to be calibrated regularly,” says Öjvind Sundvall, MD PulpEye. “As the consistency influences, among other things, the amount of chemicals added and the refining, it is very important that the consistency sensors always give the actual values. In stock preparation departments there are many flows where false or slow consistency measurements during calibrations may result in substantial costs caused by wrong product quality.”

first ConsistencyEye customers confirm that a calibration of the consistency in a flow takes only 2 to 5 minutes instead of earlier typically 40 to 60 minutes for the existing laboratory method. This easy and much faster way of calibrating contributes to a higher efficiency. In addition to that, the measurement result is independent of who does the calibration, which contributes to quality secured product properties.”

“With our package solution for measuring and calibration of consistency sensors the users know that they get the correct values, which in turn gives correct proportion of chemicals added, optimal refining and a consistent quality. Worth mentioning is that the idea came from one of our customers having a need for fast consistency verifications, which made us start developing ConsistencyEye,” Öjvind Sundvall finishes.
