UPA® Universal Process Analyzer

On-line Monitoring of Causticizing Process

The UPA® on-line analyzer system for causticizing processes is designed specifically for Kraft paper mills, enabling operators to monitor simultaneously all critical process parameters related to causticizing: NaOH, Na2S and Na2CO3. The analyzer system fits typically in a process control strategy for debottlenecking and stabilizing the causticizing process, while keeping conformity with conventional industry-standard tests:

  • Stabilizing the alkali content of the green liquor
  • Prevention of under– or over-liming
  • Maximizing white liquor strength
  • Better recovery boiler operation by reduced deadload
  • Eliminate shift to shift variability

The complete system consists of a fully automatic process titrator in conjunction with a rugged sampling/preconditioning system with the necessary provisions for temperature, pressures, viscosity… for sampling the pulping liquors.

About the UPA® Series

The UPA® Universal Process Analyzer is a state of the art multiparameter analyzer mainframe enabling operators to monitor precisely critical process parameters in liquid applications. The mainframe embodies more than 25 years of expertise in analytical chemistry and a legacy of countless applications in various industries. The flexibility and versatility of the mainframe allows, in function of the application and the measuring range, for the most suitable methodology: colorimetric or titrimetric analysis, standard addition by ISE or even a combination of two methodologies. The process analyzer is equipped with an IP55 fiberglass reinforced polyester cabinet intended for use in industrial environments.
