Tembec selects FITNIR Analyzers Inc. to reduce costs at its Skookumchuck pulp mill
After a successful 6 month trial, Tembec Pulp Group’s Skookumchuck operations has selected FITNIR Analyzers Inc. to control its causticizer processes. FITNIR’s near-infrared analyzer will measure liquor samples from six of the mill’s process streams. Constant monitoring of the samples will reduce over-liming and scaling within Tembec’s pipe lines, leading to improved process stability and mechanical performance, decreased down time, and subsequently, lower operating costs.
