October 5, 2018 – PulpEye, the Swedish measurement technology company, recently received an order from paperboard maker Iggesund for two complete PulpEye sets, one for unbleached pulps and another for bleached pulps.

Both PulpEye cabinets are equipped with modules for online analysis of kappa number, brightness, fibre, shives and fibre-wall thickness, as well as the dot analyzer DotEye. The order also comprises two ScreenEye, two LabEye and one RMEye. 

”I am very happy that we, in stiff competition, have landed our second biggest order ever,” says Öjvind Sundvall, managing director at PulpEye. “By equipping both PulpEye cabinets with a number of modules as well as one ScreenEye in each fibre line, Iggesund has good opportunities to make sure that the pulp quality will be of even higher quality and consistency, which will be beneficial to their exclusive board.” 

Iggesund replaces an old kappa number analyzer with new technology to measure fibre quality in a new way to be able to follow wood raw material variations for consistent board quality. The fibre-wall-thickness module is a new technology for characterization of pulp. 

ScreenEye is a sampler that is put in the blow line, screening the pulp in two steps and pre-washing it before it is transported to the analyzer. Online dot measurement by DotEye shows the pulp cleanliness in real-time and possible disturbances are immediately detected and can be dealt with.

”Iggesund’s bleached SBB board Invercote is well-known for its high quality and is used in packaging in different premium segments all over the world,” says Malin Ekroos, pulp manager for Iggesund Paperboard. “When we decided to invest in new technology for measuring different quality parameters our choice, after careful evaluation, was PulpEye as their technology enables online measurements of the pulp parameters that are important to us.” 

Iggesund Paperboard produces about 420,000 tonnes of bleached long- and short-fibre pulps and approximately 350,000 tonnes of Invercote annually.
