Valmet to supply a new Valmet Brown Stock Quality Analyzer for CMPC Celulosa in Chile
6 October 2017
Valmet will supply a Valmet Brown Stock Quality Analyzer (Valmet Kappa Q1) for CMPC Celulosa in Santa Fe, Chile for its fiber line 1 producing ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free) bleached eucalyptus pulp. To be installed in the blow line of the continuous digester, the Valmet Kappa Q1 will provide rapid and frequent Kappa number information for better digester and subsequent O2 stage control. Two larger multiline Valmet Kappa Analyzers have been successfully operating on the mill's larger fiber line 2 since startup in 2006.
"Safety was an important factor in our decision and the design of Valmet Kappa Q1 avoids unnecessary exposure to risk when maintenance is required. We have always had good experiences of Valmet products, fast and good support, with both existing Valmet Kappa Analyzers consistently providing better uptime compared with other devices in the mill," says Patricio Montanares, Mill Technician, CMPC Celulosa.
