DDA 5, Dynamic Drainage Analyzer 5, continues to spread around the world. The latest in the line of customers is Indonesian PT Riau Andalan Pulp & Paper, which purchased the dynamic drainage analyzer number 150 from Swedish PulpEye.
PT Riau Andalan Pulp & Paper is the operating arm of Asia Pacific Resources International Limited (APRIL Group). Operating in Riau Province, Indonesia, the company operates one of the world’s largest, most technologically advanced, and sustainable pulp and paper mills, with an annual capacity of 2.8 million tons of pulp and 1.15 million tons of paper.
“It is fantastic that we have passed the 150th drainage analyzer sold,” says Öjvind Sundvall, CEO of PulpEye. “DDA 5 has really proven itself and is now present on four continents. The analyzer is used by, among others, paper and pulp manufacturers, chemical companies, universities and research institutes. In addition to being able to realistically study the dewatering of fibre suspensions in a fast and simple way, it is also possible to study the dewatering of nanocelluloses and MFCs with special dewatering filters.”
DDA 5 is the latest version and a result of a total make-over and upgrade of the previous DDA 4. Features such as drain rate, initial drain and temperature readings are presented for selected time intervals, together with the fact that the equipment is automatically cleaned after each analysis, is very appreciated.
