STOCK CONSISTENCY

CONSISTENCY TRANSMITTERS

The pulp and paper industry depends on consistent flow of stock to ensure the even development of fiber properties. Stock consistency affects most operations, including washing, bleaching, refining, blending and additives addition in order to achieve final product quality and the ability to reproduce paper characteristics from run to run.

Consistency transmitters are integral to all of these operations and a variety of measurement technologies are required to provide useful and repeatable values.
Consistency is an inferred measurement because it is not a direct physical property, and that complicates the challenge to provide a meaningful value.

CONSISTENCY TECHNOLOGY

Tecumseth represents the entire line of Valmet consistency transmitters – blade, rotary, microware and optical – for any and every solids measurement from very heavy to very light.
The Valmet technologies are well known for their stability, reliability and longevity and Tecumseth will provide the expertise required to ensure they are properly positioned, installed and commissioned.

These technologies are all in advanced phases of evolution and have achieved the status of providing unquestioned ability. Valmet consistency transmitters are the industry standard.

CHIP “N” BARK MOISTURE

APPLICATION OF CHIP WATER CONTENT

A continuous chip moisture measurement to improve digester operation and cooking liquor dosage.

The Valmet online wood chip moisture measurement has been designed to acquire chip samples, detect moisture (0-70%) and return the sample to the feed stream. Valmet expertise in the use of microwave technology to measure moisture content in paper and board has been extended to the difficult application of chip water content. The primary variable, resonance frequency, is compensated against variations of material temperature and Q-value, which are defined by material density inside the measuring cell.

A sampling unit that provides continuous sample flow is installed on a vertical chute. The sample flow is retrieved from the main chip flow by a retrieval screw that is inserted into the chip chute. If chips are frozen, the collection chamber is heated to thaw the chips and allow consistent measurement. A return screw compresses the chips and pushes the sample through the Valmet CBA sensor and then into the downfall chute.

ANALYZER IMPACT

EDGE DRYING SYSTEM

MODULAR ADDITION FOR POSITIONAL DRYING

Infrared drying supplements dryers: Maximize Sheet Trim; Remove Persistent Streaks; Improve Sheet Quality.

Infrared drying systems used mainly for correction of wet edges. This technology provides huge energy cost savings by reducing the need to over-dry the bulk of the sheet in order to bring wet edges into specification. That often results in additional fiber being included in addition to the sheet being dryer than it could be.

The edge drying system is particularly useful for drying wet edges or streaks after coating applications.

CONTAMINANT DISPERSION

KRIMA COMPACT DISPERSING SYSTEM

Recognized as the best system available for dispersing waxes, hot melts, bitumen, stickies, laser ink as well as heavy colours, the Krima Dispersing System excels at making these contaminants effectively disappear.

The Krima Hot Dispersing System is Cellwood Machinery’s solution to optimize the performance, flexibility and operating cost on varying degrees of raw material and required results. It has a capability to operate at temperatures up to 120°C (248°F). As the most advanced system, the Krima Hot Dispersing System produces the best dispersing result for all kinds of dispersible contaminants in waste paper.

Retention time through the system is 2 minutes which is enough for in-line bleaching and a high reduction of spores and bacteria in the pulp. Discharge of the Krima Screw Press KSR does not need to be pressurized as the downstream Krima Plug Screw is designed to seal the system.

The Krima Compact Dispersing System is a non-pressurized system with capability to operate at temperatures up to 95°C (203°F). Retention time in the heating zone is 20–30 seconds. This unit is typically followed by a Krima Screw Press KSR equipped with automatic torque control to ensure a highly uniform discharge consistency. The design also allows existing dewatering equipment to be used.
