Laser Ultrasonic Measurement Of Bending Stiffness On Moving Paper: A Mill Demonstration
A laser-based ultrasonic system for non-contact, in-process measurement of the elastic properties of paper was successfully tested at an operating paper mill with web speeds exceeding 20 m/s. The paper’s flexural rigidity and out-of-plane shear rigidity were calculated from the frequency dependence of the phase velocity of ultrasonic waves generated in the moving paper by a pulsed Nd:YAG laser and detected with a Polytec Laser Vibrometer.

Analytical Measurements Protect Recovery Furnace And Boiler In A Pulp and Paper Mill
Recovery Boiler operations can be improved considerably by using continuous analytical measurements. The information they collect can be used to optimize black liquor conversion and energy extraction in the furnace without compromising safety and reliability of boiler tubes and other components. The Recovery Furnace oxidizes concentrated black liquor, thereby generating feedstock for green liquor and the rest of the Kraft process, and simultaneously producing steam for millwide use. The furnace is optimized by controlling excess combustion air levels to maximize smelt recovery, prevent corrosion, and maximize steam production
