Reduction in Compensation Costs in Pulp Mill Production
Procemex Oy Ltd has developed a new system for pulp dirt counting. Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer measures up to 100 % of total production of pulp dryer, as conventional systems measure usually 0,004 % of total production of pulp.
Procemex Dirt Count Analyzer is a smart camera based system used for measurement of dirt count from pulp sheets at the baling line. Dirt is analysed by using image analysis, and then classified according to the size and shape. Measurement results are reported both graphically and numerically.
The Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer is an online measurement system. It detects and classifies dirt and shives according to ISO and TAPPI standards providing both dirt count per square meter and dirt area per square meter (ppm). Dirt that does not qualify as dirt according to the standard is rejected from the calculation. Beyond standards, some objects like metal wires, oil and special particles relating to different raw materials are detected and classified based on their shape.
The Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer is measuring in transmission with strobe LED lights with the camera resolution of 0.1 x 0.1 mm to meet TAPPI/ISO standards. You can choose between full CD/MD coverage or one camera per bale or just few measurement points.
The Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer detects dirt in real time and stores every defect individually into the system database. The system keeps operators up to date with the amount of defect per set, per bale and per time. The amount of dirt in each bale is indicated both in real time values and with color coding. Operators can monitor real time dirt count trends indicating process changes and enable fast corrective reaction.
The dirt count values are transferred to the customer quality data management and bale tracking systems providing an easy access to any of the historical information.
Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer measures up to 100 % of total production of pulp dryer, as conventional systems measure usually 0,004 % of total production of pulp. The system’s simple yet advanced design solutions offer unlimited potential for customization. In addition to quality data transfer, Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer is widely accessible from other mill systems via various links and database view - connections.
The most cutting-edge advantage is the early discovery of defects. This allows operators to take fast actions, that results in more efficient production and improved quality.
