New TIP proposed on green liquor density measurements

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

A proposal has been made for a new Technical Information Paper (TIP): "Green liquor density measurements." 

The scope of this TIP is to discuss the importance of the density measurement of green liquor, from both a safety perspective as well as a mill economic perspective.  The advantages and disadvantages will also be discussed along with different measurement techniques and good practices to ensure good operations of the measurements. In addition, new technology has been developed and will also be reviewed.  Finally, the TIP will discuss the use of density and titratable alkali for dissolving tank control to mitigate the possibility of a smelt dissolving tank explosion while providing the highest economic value to the mill.

Any individuals who are interested in this TIP may join the Working Group and have an opportunity to review the TIP prior to its publication. If you would like to join the Working Group for this project, please notify the Standards Department at no later than September 21, 2015.
