New-Indy Containerboard, LLC will start to predict and control sheet strength with Valmet‘s fiber analyzer solution. The Valmet Pulp Analyzer, also known as Valmet MAP, and a Valmet Pulp to Paper Optimizer advanced process control solution will be installed at New-Indy Containerboard’s 1,000 tons per day containerboard machine in Ontario, California, USA.
This will be the first 100% recycled furnish containerboard machine in the world to employ the prediction of important linerboard and corrugating medium sheet strength tests through online fiber analysis. It’s also the 200th online fiber analyzer delivered by Valmet globally.
Valmet Pulp Analyzer’s fiber imaging module is equipped with technology that enables the analysis of fiber fibrillation created during refining as well as many other fiber properties important for predicting board sheet strength tests. The fiber furnish samples are taken by Valmet SD 103 process sampling devices at multiple points in cycles of a few minutes. In addition, the analyzer is equipped with the CSF freeness module.
Valmet’s Pulp to Paper Optimizer Solution is a multi-variable advanced process control that manages low-consistency refining conditions to consistently achieve final paper or board functional specifications.
