The Pulp and Paper Industry in Western Canada operates in a very competitive world market and must keep conversion costs low to be best in class producers. Pulp and Paper applications are very demanding with high pressure steam in Power and Recovery, scale build up from green and white liquor in the recausticizing area, erosion from lime mud, high consistency pulp, pH control in the bleach plant, corrosion from Chlorine Dioxide.
Mills generally use refractometers to measure the percentage concentration of their black liquor applications. However, refractometers require periodic cleaning and calibration of windows that would require a plant shutdown or loss of control. Emerson's Micro Motion Elite Series coriolis meter can provide a direct mass flow and density measurement, minimizing the amount of calculations and instruments. In addition, as maintenance is not required on a frequent basis, costly downtime is significantly reduced. Micro Motion ELITE Coriolis meters are the leading precision flow and density measurement solution offering the most accurate and repeatable mass measurement for liquids, gases, or slurries.
