Stora Enso has invested over the last two years in a wide range of BTG inline and continuous measurement systems to support control of its hardwood, softwood and fluff lines at the Skutskär mill.
This consists in Bleach Load Transmitters (BLT) measuring total kappa, Brightness Transmitters (BT) for the pulp brightness, Consistency Transmitters (TCR) using optical technology to measure the total pulp consistency, and Single Point Kappa Analyzers (SPK) providing online and high frequency measurement of fiber kappa and hexuronic acid (HexA).
In addition, Stora Enso Skutskär operates a vast number of BTG consistency transmitters based on rotating shear force technology (MEK) for the base line production rate and consistency control.
“BTG was chosen because they demonstrate the best combination of advanced and durable technology” says Jonas Heikkinen, Stora Enso Skutskär Department Manager Fiber.
Going forward, these state-of-the art measurement technologies prepare the foundation for advanced solutions of predictive control that will maximize the economic impact.
