Events – PWC 2021 virtual

The Pulp & Paper Technical Association of Canada (PAPTAC) is holding their annual conference, PaperWeek Canada (PWC) as a virtual event in 2021 (8-10 February 2021).

National and international pulp and paper mills along with other industry-focused organisations will gather to share the latest innovations in processing and production of pulp and paper. Keit’s Product & Application Manager, Dr. Jonathon Speed, presents on Wednesday, 10th February at 3:00pm EST in the Pulping Stream: An Online & Real-time Analyzer for Closed-loop Control in Pulp & Paper Manufacturing.

The IRmadillo was designed to function in harsh, caustic & challenging industrial environments. Unlike standard process analyzers, it can be installed directly on-line or in-line with manufacturing vessels and process lines throughout the Kraft process. Jonathon will go into further details on this  innovation in spectroscopic design to enable on-line monitoring for real-time control of pulp & paper processes. His presentation will include:

  • Design of the instrument, highlighting the differences in its design that separates it from classical FTIR instruments
  • Performance of the instrument in a range of chemicals of relevance to the Kraft process specifically as well as other additives or high-cost chemical monitoring
  • Demonstrate the differentiation and quantitation of sodium sulfate and sodium sulfite simultaneously in aqueous mixtures
  • Direct comparison of the static-optics spectrometer with near infrared (NIR), Raman and a traditional FTIR spectrometer
  • Explore the application of the technology in green liquor monitoring to unlock and improve process control and savings

About Keit Spectrometers and the IRmadillo Analyzers

Keit has created the family of IRmadillo mid-infrared instruments to provide in-line process analysis of liquids over a variety of operating environments – including those most challenging. They are built tough with fixed sampling probes and a vibration-tolerant design. The IRmadillo enables real-time process analysis of liquids in environments that challenge standard instrumentation.
