Fiberline Optimization at Suzano, Brazil

BTG has closed an agreement with Suzano to supply instruments and advanced process controls for its Limeira Fiberline C.

In addition to the instrumentation, BTG will deliver its unique MACSbleach process optimization solution to optimize chemical usage and reduce final brightness variability. The contract was signed in September 2018; instruments start-up is going to take place beginning of February 2019.

The supply includes one Single Point Kappa analyzer (SPK-5500) to measure digester blow line kappa, one MEK consistency transmitter for digester production calculation and consistency control, two Dissolved Lignin Transmitters (DLT-5500) in brown-stock washing to measure carryover, two Bleach Load Transmitters (BLT-5500) to measure the total kappa and one Brightness Transmitter (BT-5500) for final brightness measurement in the bleach plant.
