Jonas Pettersson-Hagel of Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk and PulpEye’s Öjvind Sundvall celebrate the purchase of PulpEye No.50 with their colleagues.

Bleached and unbleached kraft pulp is produced at the Aspa mill and the PulpEye the mill acquired contains modules for determination and measuring of kappa number, brightness, dots and pH.

“We are very pleased to have sold PulpEye unit No. 50,” said Öjvind Sundvall, managin director of PulpEye. “During the last few years we have seen an ever increasing demand for our analysis equipment for continuous monitoring of pulp quality, irrespective of pulp type. As we cooperate with leading research institutes we have been able to introduce entirely new technique and thus by and by satisfy customers’ need for quick and reliable pulp analyses. That Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk bought PulpEye No. 50 is no coincidence as they have a well-deserved image of embracing new technique in order to be able to be at the forefront.”

“We evaluated a number of alternatives for analysis of pulp online and chose to acquire PulpEye,” noted Jonas Pettersson-Hagel, production manager pulp at Ahlstrom-Munksjö Aspa Bruk. “PulpEye has for many years supported our kappa analyser and as we have that experience it was logical to choose PulpEye as our future platform. We have high demands on our specialty pulps which is why our PulpEye contains modules for measuring kappa number, brightness, dots and pH. We are planning to install the whole package with modules, test points and pipes for the samples to the analysis modules during our maintenance break in the autumn.”
