Zellstoff Celgar orders Metso's pulp laboratory

Zellstoff Celgar, a major supplier of market kraft pulp, located in Castlegar, British Columbia, Canada, has placed an order with Metso for an automatic pulp laboratory. With the new equipment, the mill will be able to improve its pulp testing capabilities to meet its quality needs better. The automatic pulp laboratory will be installed in July 2014.

"We were convinced by Metso's proven technology and ability to support us locally with their North American service teams”, says Scott Spencer, manager, Strategic Development, Zellstoff Celgar. Metso will supply a Pulp Expert automatic pulp laboratory with consistency, freeness, tensile, dirt, brightness and High-Definition fibre and shive measurements as well as a proprietary Quality Assurance Tracking program to increase the use of the measurements.

Metso Pulp Expert is significantly faster and has about ten times more testing capacity than the traditional laboratory. The reliable, immediately available quality measurements are related to laboratory standards and provide pulp mills with a full picture of total pulp quality. The unique, modular multi-measurement system enables mills to increase their production and increase their gain. There are over 200 Pulp Expert installations in pulp and paper mills around the world.
