Metso will supply its advanced process and quality vision system, Metso PQV, to three of Canfor Pulp Limited Partnership’s pulp mills in British Columbia. The new Metso PQV systems will replace an existing off-line dirt count analysis system. Through faster, more accurate, and more efficient detection of defects in the produced pulp, it is expected the mills will improve quality control.

“Implementation of the Metso PQV across all four of our fibre lines confirms our commitment to constantly improve our quality to Canfor Pulp’s global customers,” stated Joe Nemeth, president and CEO of Canfor Pulp LP.

Metso PQV uses advanced high-resolution, high-speed digital imaging technology, and integrates web quality inspection and web break analysis capabilities. The project for Canfor Pulp includes a dirt count application for full web-length pulp quality analysis.

According to Metso, this system incorporates high intensity LED-illumination and transmission imaging to analyze the on-line dirt count of the pulp according to TAPPI’s statistical dirt count index, significantly improving the dirt count measurement accuracy.

The new systems were delivered in March 2011 and will be fully operational in the fall. Total value of the delivery is EUR 1.3 million (about C$1.8 million).

With an annual production capacity of 1.2 million tons of premium NBSK, Canfor Pulp is the third largest producer of northern softwood kraft pulp in the world.
