Process Control for the Pulp and Paper Industry
Ranking among the world’s largest industries, the manufacturing of pulp, paper, and paper products produces over 400 million tons of product per year. Pulp and paper processing mills are found in more than 100 countries, with some mills only focusing on pulp or paper manufacturing, and others covering the entire production process from start to finish. Others still focus on the processing of recycling paper materials. Regardless of the type or amount of processing that occurs, moisture and ash analyses are necessary to control production time and costs. Whether it is by better calculating the amount of wood required per ton of pulp, controlling the amount of coating or binder used in finishes, or quality checks on incoming materials, these two simple test results need to be delivered quickly and accurately. CEM equipment has been trusted for almost 40 years as a source of dependable process control equipment and the new SMART 6™ Moisture/Solids Analyzer and Phoenix™ Muffle Furnace can provide precise results up to 80% faster than other techniques.
