Advanced Process Control - Bleaching Stage Optimization
Challenge: Bleaching Step Optimization.
Solution: The implementation of optimizing control in the bleaching stage can optimize the use of reagents, based on the characteristics of the pulp fed. From measurements of flow and characteristics of the pulp, the control ensures that the required amount of reagents will be used, guaranteeing the right levels of the pH and brightness of the product.
Result: It is expected a reduction of 50 to 80% in the process variability, reduction of the use of chemicals, control of brightness and a more accurate pH level.
