Paprican and Metso signed an agreement to test and develop refiner control technology designed to increase mechanical pulp mill efficiency.

The three-year accord will provide an opportunity for the pulp and paper research institute and Metso Automation to collaborate on research into advanced refiner control technology.

“It is great to work with Metso Automation’s experts, who have developed advanced knowledge of control and automation on a wide scale,” said Tom Browne, program manager of mechanical pulping at Paprican. “Their control know-how, combined with Metso’s ability to rapidly deploy new technologies, makes them the right partner for this project. Our common goal is to come up with the most advanced and the most complete refiner control process ever made available to the industry, and we are eager to start our first mill testing, which is scheduled for the summer of 2006.”
