Pulp & paper manufacturing is a multi-step process that takes raw materials like wood chips from trees and transforms it into paper fit for everyday use in schools and businesses or cardboard for shipping products worldwide. Airflow measurement is a key part of several equipment functions used in this process. Combustion optimization and boiler control for black liquor and bark furnaces ensures an efficient and fine-tuned cook during the kraft process. Airflow verification for digester gas flow is also an essential function.
Excessive energy consumption in the drying process is a concern due to rising energy costs. Mills can increase productivity and lower energy costs with improvements in drying efficiency. Material drying for coating dryers and wood drying require precise airflow control in pocket ventilation systems and paper machine dryer hood air systems.
