In collaboration with pulp mill engineering and operations personnel, Metso’s process, machinery, and automation expertise has been combined to provide Metso Advanced Process Control (mAPC). mAPC is able to intelligently manage multivariable processes, and brings improved performance to all pulp mill processes. Using predictive controls, shift-to-shift variations are eliminated in all departments from the wood yard to pulp dryer. mAPC enables production and quality targets to be met more quickly while optimizing energy, chemical, and raw material usage for additional savings and environmentally clean operation.

The new mAPC for chemical pulping has been developed from experience with optimization controls installed in more than 200 pulp mill processes around the world. These solutions, based mainly on predictive process models, have achieved a high level of performance in both fibre and recovery line processes. Controls are enhanced in many cases by Metso’s Kajaani process analyzers, which measure process conditions, chemical reaction rates, and product quality.
