In this webinar, Kimmo Koivula will discuss the importance of Brown Stock Washing (BSW) and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) optimization for pulp mill efficiency.
The development of Vaisala K‑PATENTS® SAFE-DRIVE Process Refractometer for the continuous inline measurement of dissolved solids content in a fiber suspension has made it possible to follow the performance of individual process steps continuously. TDS changes in the feed and outlet stock lines, as well as in incoming and outgoing filtrate lines, can be detected immediately. Unlike conventional methods, e.g. COD, TOC and conductivity, refractometer can detect problem areas and bottlenecks in in all types of individual brown stock washing steps and washing processes, thus providing guidance on connecting the technology to the existing process control systems.
Key topics include:
