For decades, Metso’s automation products and services have helped you to optimize the performance of your processes and the end-use performance of your recycled fiber. But Metso is much more than just a product company. With extensive knowledge of how pulp and paper and recycling processes work and how they can be optimized Metso provides solutions to the challenges facing you today.
With accurate, reliable process and fiber measurements, stabilizing controls, valves and other control devices, advanced multi-variable process controls, and operator information tools, Metso provides the means and the knowledge to solve process stability issues and ensure maximum and sustainable profitability. Together with you, our clients, we analyze and provide solutions to the most common and chronic causes of instability, inefficiency, and high costs. And furthermore, we deliver the results you ask for and expect.
Our tailor-made solutions address the common issues that recycled fiber producers face today. Furthermore, our applications knowledge and process control tools are employed to optimize the productivity and profitability of recycled fiber (RCF) lines.
Stable furnish for high-efficiency papermaking
Metso’s advanced multi-variable control (AQC) of the recycled fiber process provides a stable and predictable furnish for optimum and efficient paper production. Metso analyzers provide the accurate online inputs to ensure that the furnish contains a stable ash content, low and stable residual ink content (ERIC) and brightness is consistent. Inputs from Metso consistency analyzers provide a stable base for mass flow and optimum unit operation control. Automated online analyzers are utilized to determine freeness and fiber length distribution and to allow close management of these properties for the benefit of the papermaking lines.
Highest fiber yield
Multi-variable (AQC) control of the individual unit operations and the entire fiber line ensure that the maximum amount of prime quality fiber is produced for the paper machines. This ensures that the fiber recycling operation is always at its most efficient set of operating points.
Lowest chemical consumption
From the drum pulper to the pulp storage tanks the optimization of high quality fiber yield and appropriate chemical addition goes hand in hand. With multi-variable optimization controls yield and chemical costs are simultaneously optimized.
Highest brightness for the lowest cost
By employing advanced process models the brightness of papermaking furnish is maintained while minimizing the amounts of bleaching and brightening agents. Controlling dye flows ensure the final shade is correct .
Extending automation network lifecycles and minimizing lifecycle costs
By modernizing and upgrading the capabilities of your existing automation infrastructure maintenance costs can be slashed, uptime can be maximized and the lifecycle of your investments in automation can be extended for many years.
