Honeywell is collaborating with BTG Instruments to optimize fibreline control in pulp mills. By integrating Honeywell’s Profit Controller® suite of advanced process control applications with BTG’s line of high-performance sensors and analyzers, pulp mills can improve fiberline operations by incorporating environmental and quality aspects into their control systems. This additional information helps ensure the right amount of chemicals, energy and fibre are used throughout batch and continuous cooking, thermomechanical pulping, and bleaching processes.

“We have already seen significant interest from both existing and new customers as a result of this collaboration because mills have struggled for many years to incorporate the right information into their control systems,” said Rick Van Fleet, global pulping APC solutions manager, Honeywell Process Solutions. “Combining Profit Controller’s optimization qualities with the visibility provided by BTG’s products will make efficient pulp mill fibreline control a reality.”

As part of the collaboration, mills can streamline maintenance and sustain system operation through Honeywell’s remote monitoring service offering, as well as through BTG’s global service network.
