Learn to Optimize Key Processes at PEERS 2018
Published: July 5 2018
The Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability (PEERS) Conference, taking place October 28-31, 2018 in Portland, Ore.,USA, will offer eight program tracks focused on operations and maintenance throughout pulp mills.
In the Engineering, Power & Recovery, Recaust & Lime Kiln track, you and your team will have the opportunity to gain key process knowledge and understand practical applications, from process simulations to bi-product processing, that will help improve optimization and drive economic success.
Sessions will be focused on:
- Lime Kiln Refractories
- Combustion & Emission
- Managing Mill Processes
- Improved Kiln Operation & Efficiency
- Bi-Product Sustainability
- Improving Operations Through Simulations
- Energy Optimization
With four panel discussions on:
- Project Management
- Refractory Installation
After completing this track, attendees will be able to:
- Define what are non-process elements and the means to remove these from mill processes
- Describe the mechanism that contributes to carbonate scaling in green liquor scaling and devise the means to minimize its impact on the process
- Describe the effects of firing black liquor droplet size on recovery operations and evaluate the use of steam injection on droplet size of firing black liquor at their mill
- Explain the sticky behavior of bio-sludge and how it impacts the mill process
- Recite the common faults in Kraft Recovery Boiler, as determined by statistical analysis
- Evaluate and manage evaporator fouling to derive means to improve efficiency
- Describe the benefits of CFD modeling on kiln operations and how it has influence kiln design
- Assess the use of wood powder on kiln operations
- Apply new data for alignment of kiln for greater accuracy
- Realize the value of low pressure steam for paper mill power plant optimization
- Describe strategies for use of warm and hot water in kraft pulping
