Pulp and paper operations grind to a halt when boilers face downtime. That’s why automation is critical. Having a water quality monitoring solution that can monitor boilers, process water, mill tanks, and more can ensure water quality.
Pulp and paper operations rely on boiler uptime in order to be able to meet production goals. However, companies can face equipment issues and increased downtime without proper water quality management. Find out how one Fortune 500 company leveraged KETOS to monitor water in their mill tank, boiler, and process water to increase their rate of return by 15%, thanks to more predictable uptime.
Pulp and paper operations risk downtime when boilers must be taken offline for maintenance. Water treatment challenges can often impact the quality and consistency of boiler and process water, which can severely impact production capacity.
Automation of water quality, however, can help water operators in pulp and paper better monitor their water to ensure the optimal balance of chemicals. This protects equipment and reduces downtime, helping the organization provide for a more predictable production capacity month over month.
With KETOS, pulp and paper operations can:
KETOS provides automated testing that is lab-accurate and in real-time without the need for manual interventions or third-party testing that can delay analysis and action. With an added layer of machine learning and AI, operators are able to build insights into usage to help them better protect against equipment downtime while reducing water usage and labor costs.
