Valmet, Finland, has received an order for a Valmet Pulp Analyzer (Valmet MAP) from UPM in China. The Valmet MAP with freeness module and optional Fiber Image module will be installed with six sampling devices for UPM's PM 2 in Changshu. 

"We have been using the previous generation Valmet online freeness analyzer on PM 2 for 10 years. With technological upgrading and innovation, we again selected the latest Valmet Pulp Analyzer for its fast and precise online fiber and furnish measurement to improve runnability and productivity," said Zhou Long, production manager for PM 2. Installation and startup is scheduled for the third quarter of 2018.

The Valmet Pulp Analyzer provides paper, board, and tissue makers with fast and precise online updates of key fiber and papermaking furnish properties. It represents the state of the art in online fiber analysis, built on continuous advancements by Valmet for the past 30 years. Rather than waiting for infrequent, time-delayed laboratory tests, fast and decisive control actions can be achieved to manage furnish properties for better paper and improved production. 

"Valmet MAP will be the ideal tool at PM 2 for furnish management, screening, blending, and improving refining operations while providing energy savings as well," according to Jackson Sui, senior automation sales manager for Valmet in China.

UPM is a forest-based bio industry company that provides sustainable and safe solutions to the growing global consumer demand. Products are made of renewable materials and are recyclable. They offer alternatives to replace non-renewable fossil-based materials.
