Södra's Mörrum Mill Installs New Kappa Analyzer Units

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Södra's Mörrum mill in Sweden this week received the second order for a large Metso (Finland) Kappa Q analyzer unit. The delivered analyzer replaces Mörrum's retiring Metso Kappa analyzers after a long service of more than 15 years. The new analyzer includes the online kappa and brightness measurements and, as a new feature to the previous ones, online fiber and shives measurements.

During their lifecycle, the replaced analyzers at the Mörrum mill carried out some 4.5 million measurements. After well over a decade's usage of two kappa analyzers and a brightness analyzer, the mill decided to gradually replace the old analyzers with recently released Metso Kappa Q technology.

The Mörrum mill has several other Metso analyzers and sensor installations, such as alkali analyzers in the caustification plant and different versions of Cormec and Polarox inline-measurements of pulp brightness and residual chemicals.

Södra Cell Mörrum annually produces 360,000 metric tons of paper pulp, of which 87% is exported.
