                          In detail
                          Continuous batch cooking (CBC) combines the advantages of batch operation with the continuous preparation of cooking liquors. The basic concept is to prepare all the process-related liquors in the tank farm using different tank-to-tank circulation loops.

                          CBC is the only displacement technology allowing a consistent and even alkali profile throughout the impregnation and cooking steps. Quick heating to temperature and the unique alkali profile are the main keys for the significantly reduced cooking cycle time and for improvement in pulp quality.

                          VISCBC is the process for dissolving grad pulp manufacture implementing steam pre-hydrolysis followed by a neutralization step. CBC’s special liquor management shortens the cooking cycle time and boosts capacity while improving pulp quality and yield. Quality benefits extend to pulp homogeneity, strength properties and bleachability.

                          CBC utilizes minimum equipment, thus saving investment costs and simplifying operation and process control. Separate digester circulation systems and circulation heat exchangers are no longer required.

                          The specialists of Lenzing Technik have extensive know-how in design, engineering, construction and optimization of digester plants. Their experience in combination with the company's competence in project management and contracting ensures superior project realization.

                        • Automated periodic measurement of extinction of sulfite cooking liquor in the digester.

                          Features
                          • Optical transmission measurement
                          • Measuring range: 10 - 50 extinction points
                          • Accuracy: +/- 0.5 points per calibration
                          • Sampling frequency: maximum 3 per minute including sample preparation

                          In detail
                          In sulfite pulping, the extinction of the cooking liquor is a key factor in determining the end point of the cooking process, and therefore, in observing the quality of the desired product.

                          TRACK 510 is impressive due to its exceptionally high rate of automation for continuous measurement of the rate of extinction of the sulfite cooking liquor. What makes this device unique is the continuous detection of the extinction rate of the sulfite cooking liquor.

                          With TRACK 510, product quality can be improved as a result of constantly recording actual values. It is also possible to incorporate the data in a DCS and there is no need to take samples by hand, to name just some of the most important advantages.

                          The main advantages of the automated system are frequent sampling, accurate measuring and possible integration into the DCS.

                              • Treatment of odorous gases

                              This system facilitates the elimination of environmental impacts and provides a significant reduction of production costs brought about by high absorption efficiency and the integration of diffuse emissions.

                              The Lenzing Mg base recovery system was developed and optimized for minimized chemical losses and for efficient non-process-elements management.

                              The complete recovery system covers the incineration of the concentrated spent sulfite liquor together with odorous gases, the separation of the fly ash by a wet separator or electrostatic precipitator, the preparation of MgO-hydrate-slurry, which is used in multistage venturi washers to reduce the SO2 emission at the stack and gain raw acid. Then the raw acid is clarified and fortified in absorption towers and/or accumulators at different pressure levels.

                              Lenzing Technik has developed a special computer simulation using all relevant data form the DCS system to ensure a constant quality of the raw acid, compliance of emission and minimization of make-up MgO.

                              • Optimized cooking liquor composition

                              In detail
                              Acid sulfite cooking requires the addition of free SO2 into the cooking liquor. This causes an unbalanced ratio of MgO to SO2.

                              MgSO3 => MgO + SO2

                              This process step - the thermal decomposition of magnesium sulfite - provides the means for direct SO2-recycling and reduces the costs of make-up chemicals and the level of emissions.
