HPD has asked me to comment on the following mill conditions, which I am happy to do.
Caustic prices are rising rapidly and chemical makeup costs are starting to create a serious impact on mill profitability.
If you are currently dumping ash to control chlorides or experiencing plugging in your recovery boiler, the Chloride Removal Process (CRP™) may be the solution to these issues.
A CRP System from HPD removes Chlorides, Potassium, and other non-process elements from your recovery cycle improving recovery boiler operation. Additionally, the CRP system will greatly reduce the amount of valuable salt cake lost to reach a given Chloride level, therefore reducing your chemical cost.
Please visit their website (by clicking on the picture above or clicking on "More" below) to learn more about the HPD CRP System or contact one of their process specialists to discuss this system further.
And, I'll add, please tell them you saw them on Nip Impressions.
Answer to last week's riddle: After you pull a slip, eat it. Your boss will look at the slip left over, see that it has $0 on it. By default he will assume that the slip you pulled and ate had $10,000 written on it, and you should get your bonus.
Last week's riddle asked: "Your boss determines your bonus by placing 2 slips of paper with $0 and $10,000 written on them in a hat and having you pick. Right before your meeting, a rival employee (and favorite of the boss's) informs you that he, the rival, has written $0 on both of the slips of paper that you will draw from. When you meet with your boss and go through the routine of pulling a slip, what non-verbal action should you take to ensure that you get a bonus?"
This week's riddle: An evil genius proposes a challenge to two stock-snowmobile racing participants. After providing them with only 8 days of food, he drops them off at the beginning of a course that takes at least 7 days to complete. The evil genius proclaims: "The participant whose snowmobile crosses the finish-line second will win $1,000,000." After traveling more slowly than normal for days trying to figure out how to lose the race without starving, a wise mountain man gives the racers some advice. Hearing the advice, the snowmobilers jump on the vehicles and speed towards the finish as fast as possible. What did the wise mountain man suggest?
