Maximizing profitability in tissuemaking
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 products. But Metso is much more than just a product company. With extensive knowledge of how pulp and paper processes work and how they can be optimized Metso provides solutions to the challenges facing you today.
With accurate, reliable process and product measurements, stabilizing controls, valves and other process 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 papermaker face today:
Raw material costs are slashed by stabilizing the process, managing and optimizing process additive targets. Dewatering and drying energy is applied to the paper, board or tissue sheets for maximum thermal efficiency and savings. Automation solutions are labor saving as well, by making sampling and testing a hands-free operation. With new, reliable and self-diagnostic measurements the lifecycle costs of analyzers and automation equipment have been lowered considerably.
Improving quality to your customers
Key product quality parameters are maintained at customer-specified levels, thereby improving softness, strength, appearance and absorption.
Increasing production rate
A stable, low-variability machine can run consistently at its maximum production rate.
Lower energy consumption
The highest efficiency steam profiler family and optimized controls increase your production capacity, save energy and improve your moisture profile.
Reducing in-mill waste
By making paper quality more consistent and predictable in both the machine direction and cross direction, in-mill rejects are reduced. Moreover, grade change and startup times and losses after web breaks are minimized, thereby adding to production efficiency.
Increasing effective production time
Sheet breaks due to process instabilities are reduced with multi-variable model controls based on Kajaani wet end process measurements. On-line machinery condition analysis alerts operators and maintenance personnel to just developing mechanical problems so repairs are made a the right time for the right reasons and potential failures are avoided.
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. Also, with a more capable platform for automation, many optimizing controls can be added now and the in the future for additional return on investment.
