Canfor Pulp Limited Partnership, Vancouver, B.C., Canada, has introduced its Canfor Pulp Calculator App that provides instant accessibility to key information vital in today's fast paced business environment. "We recognize that we must evolve our technical tools to better serve your needs," Canfor Pulp noted in its introduction of the new app, adding that for many years, its Temap website has been an industry source for key pulp and paper knowledge and support.

"Have you ever needed to immediately convert Canadian Standard Freeness to Schopper Riegler and not been near your computer? How about calculating the Specific Edge Load of your LC refiner in the control room? Or for our friends in the solid wood business, determining the number of board feet from cubic meters in the lumber yard?" Canfor Pulp asks. The Canfor Pulp Calculator App offers these capabilities and others, it points out:

  • Pulp/paper strength
  • Kappa number to K#
  • Energy calculators
  • Fiber contacts
  • LC refining calculators.

The company also says that The Canfor Pulp Calculator App marks Phase 1 of its Pulp's Quality Information Platform—with more to come.

The Canfor Pulp Calculator App can be downloaded online, or the site can be bookmarked on a mobile device or personal computer.
