FITNIR Scores Breakthrough Project with Fibria

VANCOUVER, BC (News release) -- FITNIR Analyzers Inc. announced that Fibria Celulose S/A selected FITNIR Online liquor analyzer and FITNIR MC chip moisture analyzer for its Aracruz Pulp Mill in Espírito Santo state, Brazil. This is a milestone project for FITNIR as it marks its first implementation in South America.

As a part of its Industry 4.0 transformation, Fibria's selection of FITNIR's technology was based on the importance of accurate and relevant data in moving towards a new era in process control where online data availability is essential. "FITNIR's capability of measuring key properties including moisture, solids, lignin, and organic and inorganic solids, as well as the ability to expand to new measurements in the future, was an immense draw for us," says Estevão Frigini Mai, R&D Scientist at Fibria. "With its high uptime, low maintenance potential and versatility, FITNIR's technology can be reliably used for advanced process automation today as well as for future automated-cognitive processes to improve efficiencies, quality, and ultimately productivity and profits," adds Mai.

"We are thrilled to finally be working with Fibria on this breakthrough project," says Thanh Trung, VP of Technology at FITNIR. "We anticipate great success with this implementation and look forward to the possibility of expanding to other process streams with Fibria, showcasing our ability to help optimize the pulp and paper industry in Brazil."

Project delivery is expected to take place in mid-December 2018, with implementation and start-up in the first quarter of 2019.
