ASD Inc. Introduces QualitySpec® K-B Analyzer — New Process Optimization for Paper and Pulp Industry
April 28, 2008

Industry first solution for accurate and simultaneous at-line measurement of Kappa number and Brightness of chemical pulps will help industry reduce hazardous chemical consumption, maximize product consistency, and save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

ASD Inc. introduces the QualitySpec® K-B NIR Analyzer, an industry first total solution for simultaneous at-line measurement of Kappa number and brightness on wet pulp at multiple process locations. The QualitySpec K-B allows for tighter, more accurate process control, and the ability to feed forward / feed back information on Kappa number and Brightness. 

“With the QualitySpec K-B system, the Paper and Pulp Industry has a new tool for process optimization which increases the frequency of in-process measurements, while greatly reducing the need for wet chemistry requiring consumable toxic chemicals,” says Chris Pederson, ASD technical specialist for paper and pulp applications. “More frequent testing drastically reduces the consumption of delignification and bleaching chemicals and waste, and product consistency is maximized, potentially saving each mill hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.”

ASD Inc. will be showing the new QualitySpec K-B system at PaperCon ‘08 in Dallas TX May 4-7 and at Pulp and Paper Week SPCI 2008 in Stockholm, Sweden May 27-29.
