Valmet will supply eleven Valmet Microwave Consistency Measurements (Valmet MCA) to SCA's Ortviken mill in Sweden. The mill is currently being converted from paper to market pulp production. The consistency measurements will be installed in the new chemi-thermomechanical pulp (CTMP) line to control the process reliably. The measurements will be delivered during the 1Q 2022.
Valmet Microwave Consistency Measurement measures the total consistency of the pulp process stream independent of fiber length, freeness, wood species, or blend. The measurement is not affected by flow rate, brightness, or color and enables better control for more efficient production, improved quality, and economic savings with fewer process upsets and less off-grade product. It offers a wide consistency range (0-16 Cs%) for different applications in the pulp and paper industry. The sensor is easy to install and requires no regular maintenance, keeping commissioning and running costs to a minimum.
SCA group is Europe's largest private forest owner, and it offers packaging paper, pulp, wood products, renewable energy, and services for forest owners and efficient transport solutions. SCA Ortviken in Sundsvall, Sweden, is a mill site in transformation.
