Smurfit Kappa first to install ContainerEye from PulpEye
The Smurfit Kappa Piteå kraftliner mill in Sweden is the first customer to install ContainerEye, a tidy, blue container with a PulpEye cabinet equipped with modules for kappa number, crill, fibre and shives analyses. The ContainerEye is a turnkey delivery ready to connect with sample points, water, electricity and sewer. It offers customers a cost efficient package solution in its literal sense.
“Long distances from sample points are normally no problem and the Pulp- Eye unit can be placed in a quiet, clean spot, beneficial to users as well as to the analyzer,” says Öjvind Sundvall, MD, PulpEye. “However, in cases where there is no such possibility we can now offer ContainerEye, the cost efficient and perfect environment for users and analyzer.”
The installation is fast as there is no need to re-build or build new facilities in pulp mills or in paper mills’ stock preparation areas. The PulpEye unit is placed in a protected, quiet, clean, temperature- controlled container. All in all, it is a cost efficient solution for the customer.
“According to our project standard, the costs to establish purpose-built facilities are very high,” says Henrik Nordqvist, Smurfit Kappa Piteå. “However, as we rent the equipment the concept with a suitable container is perfect as future changes can always be done due to equipment needs, structure and location. It is advantageous for the customer to evaluate the equipment during a long time as well as for the supplier to develop it”.
PulpEye says the experience from this unconventional solution is good and the next delivery is already in the pipeline. Apart from specific pulp and paper mills, it has also received enquiries from other customers who need to move on-line analyzer equipment to different mills within the same group.
