PulpEye (Sweden) reported late this past month (Sept. 26, 2018) that it received its second biggest order ever when Iggesund (Sweden) paperboard bought two complete PulpEye sets, one for the unbleached and one for the bleached pulps. Both PulpEye cabinets are equipped with modules for online analysis of kappa number, brightness, fiber, shives, and fiber wall thickness, as well as the dot analyser DotEye. The order also comprises two ScreenEye, two LabEye and one RMEye.  

"I am very happy that we, in stiff competition, have landed our second biggest order ever," said ÷jvind Sundvall, MD at PulpEye. "By equipping both PulpEye cabinets with a number of modules as well as one ScreenEye in each fiber line, Iggesund has good opportunities to make sure that the pulp quality will be of even higher quality and consistency, which will be beneficial to their exclusive board."

Iggesund replaces an old kappa number analyzer with new technology to measure fiber quality in a new way to be able to follow wood raw material variations in a better way. The fiber wall thickness module is a very new technology for characterization of pulp. Thanks to this comprehensive investment even better possibilities have been created to follow the fiber from wood yard to board mill in order to achieve an even more consistent board quality

ScreenEye is a sampler which is put in the blow line, screening the pulp in two steps and pre-washing it before it is transported to the analyzer. Online dot measurement by DotEye shows the pulp cleanliness in real-time and possible disturbances are immediately detected and can be dealt with.

"Iggesund’s bleached SBB board Invercote is well-known for its high quality and is used in packaging in different premium segments all over the world," said Malin Ekroos, pulp manager, Iggesund Paperboard. "When we decided to invest in new technology for measuring different quality parameters our choice, after careful evaluation, was PulpEye as their technology enables online measurements of the pulp parameters that are important to us."

Iggesund Paperboard produces ca 420,000 metric tpy bleached long- and short-fiber pulps as well as ca 350,000 metric tpy of Invercote.
