Zellstoff Celgar has placed an order with Metso for a next-generation automatic pulp laboratory. With the new equipment, the pulp mill in Castlegar, B.C., will be able to improve its pulp testing capabilities and will have significantly faster testing capabilities. The automatic pulp laboratory will be installed in July.

“We were convinced by Metso's proven technology and ability to support us locally with their North American service teams," says Scott Spencer, manager, strategic development, Zellstoff Celgar.

Metso will supply a Pulp Expert automatic pulp laboratory with consistency, freeness, tensile, dirt, brightness and high-definition fiber and shive measurements as well as a proprietary Quality Assurance Tracking program to maximize the use of the measurements.

Metso Pulp Expert is significantly faster and has about ten times more testing capacity than a traditional laboratory. The reliable, immediately-available quality measurements are related to laboratory standards and provide pulp mills with a full picture of total pulp quality, says the supplier.

Zellstoff Celgar, part of Mercer International Group, is one of the largest and most modern single line kraft pulp mills in North America. It produces approximately 520,000 ADMTs annually.
