Metso to supply advanced controls to M-real Joutseno and Kaskinen pulp mills in Finland

April 21, 2010 - 20:17

ESPOO, Finland, April 22, 2010 (Press Release) -Metso will supply advanced quality control solutions (AQC) and kajaaniMAP analyzers to M-real's Joutseno and Kaskinen mills in Finland. The mills produce bleached chemi-thermomechanical pulp (BCTMP) altogether nearly 600,000 tons per year. The new solutions will be commissioned in the fall of 2010.

The integrated Metso solution will combine the mills' existing metsoDNA automation solutions with a new kajaaniMAP analyzer for freeness, fiber length and shives measurement, and an Advanced Quality Control (AQC) solution. This combination will reduce BCTMP quality variability, optimize and decrease the specific energy required for refining, increase plant production and ease the operators' work.

M-real, Europe's leading board supplier and a major paper producer, provides its customers with high-quality board and paper for consumer packaging and to meet the needs of communications and advertising. The company's global sales network serves brand owners, carton printers, publishers, printing houses, merchants, and office suppliers.
