Optimal wet tension results in higher efficiency

By optimising the whole production line using the MoRe wet tension method, the machine speed can be increased in cases where wet tension is a limiting factor.

By optimising the whole production line using the MoRe wet tension method, the machine speed can be increased in cases where wet tension is a limiting factor. This is valid for fast modern newspaper machines as well as for older paper machines with long free draws. Pulp manufacturers benefit from this method in their product development work with optimisation of wet tension properties. It is also important for manufacturers of pulp and paper chemicals in order to obtain knowledge of how their products influence wet tension and hence paper machine efficiency.

We help you get the most out of your resources

What is the actual value of the wood you buy? MoRe Research can give you the answer.

Getting the most out of the raw material is crucial in today's pulp production. But how do you put a value on wood? At MoRe Research we use a unique valuation system in which conventional charateristics, such as density, dry content, and freshness are weighed in relation to pulp yield, processability and runability. Customer projects have shown that production costs from different wood types can differ by as much as 50 per cent, though the purchase price was the same. What is the actual value of the wood you buy? MoRe Research can give you the answer.

Good process control the key to profitability

MoRe Research's Performance Index method is a powerful tool to spot strong and weak positions along the process line.

MoRe Research's Performance Index method analyses causes and effects in controlled optimisation situations. The rebuilt of a continuous digester resulted in degraded pulp characteristics. We determined that this was caused by changes in the wood material used, while the rebuilt resulted in improved use of the wood's value potential. Good control of the incoming raw material, optimisation of the chemistry of different process steps and efforts to minimise the negative mechanical effects in the production chain are the keys to a well-optimised process. MoRe Research can be your tool in achieving it.

We demonstrate the pulp's usability

Our cost-effective Product Suitability Test (PST) determines the pulp's usability in different paper applications.

Conventional pulp evaluation has its merits, but does it correlate to how the pulp reacts in different conversion processes? Our cost-effective Product Suitability Test (PST) determines the pulp's usability in different paper applications while giving you valuable experience in preparation for later mill trials. Our PST recently provided interesting results for a customer using new types of hardwood pulp for tissue production. Are you entering new markets? Talk to us first.

Effective help to avoid impurities and deposits

Impurities in end products and deposits on process equipment cause costly disturbances to production - but we can find the solution to these problems.

Impurities in end products and deposits on process equipment cause costly disturbances to production - but we can find the solution to these problems and we can produce information on the composition of impurities and their source. Combined with our thorough process experience and well-developed databases, our analysis tools make possible quick and effective process troubleshooting. Common analysis tools in such cases are Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, optical microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy.
