Valmet has received an order for a Valmet Pulp Analyzer (Valmet MAP) from UPM in China. The Valmet MAP with freeness module and optional Fiber Image module will be installed with six sampling devices for UPM's PM 2 in Changshu.
"We have been using the previous generation Valmet online freeness analyzer on PM 2 for ten years. With technological upgrading and innovation, we again selected the latest Valmet Pulp Analyzer for its fast and precise online fiber and furnish measurement to improve runnability and productivity," says Mr. Zhou Long, Production Manager for PM 2. Installation and start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2018.
The Valmet Pulp Analyzer provides paper, board and tissue makers with fast and precise online updates of key fiber and papermaking furnish properties. It represents the state of the art in online fiber analysis, built on continuous advancements by Valmet for the past thirty years. Rather than waiting for infrequent, time-delayed laboratory tests, fast and decisive control actions can be achieved to manage furnish properties for better paper and improved production.
"Valmet MAP will be the ideal tool at PM 2 for furnish management, screening, blending and improving refining operations while providing energy savings as well," according to Jackson Sui, Senior Automation Sales Manager for Valmet in China.
