  • Flow Measurement in High Process Noise Environments

    Pulp and Paper processes provide noisy environments for measurement instrumentation. This 5-minute YouTube video demonstrates how magnetic flowmeter (magmeter) process noise diagnostics and noise mitigation technology improves flow measurement in pulp & paper processes using the process noise demo. The demonstration shows the effect of particulate on the magmeter, how the process diagnostic detects high noise levels…

  • Modernizing Burner Management Systems

    The Industrial Safety and Security Source blog has a post, Firing Up Burner System , which describes the implementation of a burner management system (BMS) at RockTenn ‘s recycled paper mill in St. Paul, Minnesota. Their challenge was to replace an old relay panel-based BMS on the plant boilers. The National Fire Protection Agency (NPFA) 85: Boiler and Combustion Systems Hazards Code standard no longer recognized this…

  • Dealing with Fixed Deadtime with the Smith Predictor Algorithm

    I recently exchanged some emails with Emerson’s Sergei Kuznetsov , part of TAG projects organization, and based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Sergei is principal control systems engineer, certified professional engineer, and has an MSEE degree. He shared with me an article, Staying In Control that he had written for Engineered Wood Journal magazine. The article describes ways to improve flake blending and mat forming…

  • Taking a Systematic Approach in Managing Control Valves

    In several parts of the world including North America, Emerson Process Management sells some of its products and services through local business partners. I came across a great Pulp & Paper magazine article, Control Valve Management Can Pay Off Big , written by Jeff Klatt. Jeff is with one of these local business partners, R.E. Mason . Jeff recounted his experiences as a large paper mill’s asset manager. What struck…

  • Setting New Production Records with Improved Control Performance

    I saw an email about a success at a northern U.S. paper maker that set a new production record. To whom did they attribute this success? Since this is a blog about the experts around Emerson Process Management, you might guess the answer. And you’d be correct. They attributed their new production record to the work of our Control Performance team and their process and control study process. I caught up with Andrew…

  • Chemical Recovery Boiler Performance Efficiency

    We discussed improvement of multi-fuel boilers in an earlier post. Similarly, pulp and paper manufacturers often wrestle with chemical recovery boilers because of the complexity of the combustion process. This complexity is largely driven by the variability in the “fuel” ( black liquor ) and often by swings in production rate. The variation in the BTU content of the incoming black liquor can cause difficulty in meeting…
