Valmet will upgrade Mercer Rosenthal’s mill’s Valmet IQ Quality Control System with the new scanner and related measurements. Valmet delivered the existing quality control system in 1999, and after more than 20 years of reliable operation, Mercer Rosenthal made the decision to upgrade its aging system to ensure its continuous sustainability and reliability.
The value of the order will not be disclosed. The commissioning will take place in September 2021.
The delivery consists of Valmet IQ Quality Control System with a new 8th generation Valmet IQ Scanner. Additionally, included are Valmet IQ Pulp Weight Measurement, Valmet IQ Microwave Moisture Measurement and Valmet IQ Web Color Measurement. The measurements help to ensure more precise control of machine and cross direction properties such as color control or moisture content.
Mercer Rosenthal is part of the North American Mercer International Group, one of the world's leading manufacturers of long fiber pulp.
Valmet is the leading global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries.
