Canfor Corp. has selected FITNIR Analyzers Inc. to supply and install advanced infrared measurement technology at their Intercontinental pulp mill in Prince George, B.C.  FITNIR’s analyzer will enable Canfor to monitor and control key chemical data to optimize the solution composition of its chlorine dioxide (ClO2) generator. The improved generator efficiency and pulp production levels will provide tangible financial and environmental benefits.

“We are very excited to be working with yet another Canfor mill,” said Tom Sands, CEO of Vancouver-based FITNIR Analyzers Inc. “Canfor is a true industry leader and we believe our cutting-edge analyzer will add to its strong competitive position in the market.”

Implementation is underway and expected to be completed in the spring of 2011.

The decision to implement FITNIR was made on the heels of the successful completion of the system upgrade at the Northwood mill site in October 2010. With the accurate measurements that the analyzer will provide, Canfor’s Intercontinental pulp mill can expect significant savings on chemical costs. Furthermore, anticipated system reliability and efficiency improvements will result in considerably less downtime and lost pulp production, as well as a higher quality product.
