Automation for stock preparation
Final sheet properties and web runnability are virtually dependent on the stability of the dry solid flows that make up the blended furnish, the fiber quality developed in refining, and the addition of fillers and chemicals in the right amounts.
Measurements and controls for furnish management ensure the functional properties of the sheet are maintained on-spec during steady state operation and during production changes. Papermakers manage furnish quality changes quickly, smoothly, with minimun waste. A consistent furnish forms and drains predictability, stabilizing quality and improving runnability.

Valmet MAP puts Jujo Thermal on the right track to improved refiner control
Jujo Thermal, a subsidiary of Nippon Paper Industries situated in Kauttua southwest Finland, is one of the world’s leading suppliers of durable direct thermal papers for labels, tickets & tags and point-of-sales use. The mill operates two paper machines with two off machine coaters and three winders to produce 80,000 tons of paper per year of which more than 95% is exported. As part of its continuous improvement efforts the mill recently installed a Valmet Pulp Analyzer (Valmet MAP) to gain a better understanding of refiner operation and improve pulp quality to PM1.
Valmet MAP shows the route to better refiner management
The Pankaboard mill, located in Lieksa, Eastern Finland, is a world leader in the production of high thickness folding boxboards and uncoated cartonboards for packaging, various graphical and industrial applications and food service products. Continuous product development and new innovations employed by the mill have ensured that the products from their two distinctly different board machines, BM2 and BM3, always fulfill specific customer needs. As part of this philosophy, Pankaboard recently installed a Valmet Pulp Analyzer (Valmet MAP) to help provide better refiner control of the multiple furnishes to the board machines.
