Pulp & Paper

Pulp and paper are manufactured from cellulose fibers that usually come from chipped wood, recycled paper, or agricultural products, through a series of pressing and drying processes.

The production of pulp and paper is usually carried out by the kraft process, and involves a lime kiln, recovery boiler and power boiler, all of which generate emissions.

Monitoring combustion reaction gases in the kraft process helps support efficiency, improve safety and reduce costs. Additionally, process emissions must be monitored to control pollution.

Our extensive knowledge of combustion control and emissions monitoring plays a key role in the pulp and paper industry. Our trusted analyzers provide important process-control measurements for oxygen as well as critical emission measurements for sulfur dioxide and NOx.

    Combustion

    Efficient control of the combustion processes in pulp and paper production can help reduce the fuel costs involved in creating the energy required, and also lowers harmful emissions. Keep Reading


    Emission compliance

    Pulp and paper production can generate harmful gases and particulate matter, which are subject to environmental regulation. Compliance with these regulations must be demonstrated to avoid fines and other sanctions. Keep Reading


    Kilns

    Lime kilns are used as part of the recovery process. Calcium carbonate precipitate from the white liquor is heated in the kiln to create calcium oxide, used to regenerate the calcium hydroxide. Combustion control in the kiln is important to process efficiency, safety and emissions control. Keep Reading


    Power and steam boiler

    Boilers are required to provide the power and steam needed for many stages of the kraft process. Efficient burner control ensures reduced fuel costs and lower emissions. Keep Reading
