PREVENTION OF LONG UNPLANNED BOILER OUTAGES WITH TUBE DEPOSIT INSPECTIONS AND LEAK DETECTION
Presenter: Timo Karjunen, Valmet; Varo Industrial Services
Facilitator: Murray Ellis, Process Technology Manager - Recovery, Opal Australian Paper
This webinar will cover the main causes for long, unplanned outages in recovery boilers experienced in Nordic mills, their root causes and how they can be prevented.
Experiences gained during the last 25 years in Nordic mills indicate that main causes for long, unplanned outages in recovery boilers are leaks leading to smelt-water explosions and corrosion damages due to internal deposits and low quality boiler water. Cases of such incidents are presented, and ways how such incidents can be prevented are discussed.

FORMING – HOW PROPER VACUUM MANAGEMENT CONTRIBUTES TO IMPROVED SHEET SOLIDS AND REDUCED DRAG LOADS
Presenter: Butch Yeldell, Asten Johnson
Facilitator: Carlo Bigaran, General Manager, BRR- Global Pulp and Paper Projects
This discussion will aid in understanding the influencing factors for power consumption or drag load on the forming section. Proper set up and operations of drainage equipment can aid in optimizing the drag load as well as improving sheet solids. Benefits from optimizing the vacuum set up are shared in the case studies.
