ABB, the leading power and automation technology group has successfully commissioned a new Quality Control System (QCS) at Burrows Paper Corporationís Mohawk Valley Paper Mill in Little Falls, New York. The system is a replacement of the original ABB QCS that had been in place for the last 25 years. The new system was commissioned in April 2014.

Installed on the millís paper machine, PM12, the new QCS system will help maintain superior product quality by providing better sensing and control of the paper machine, and automated grade change capability that will improve efficiency when making short runs of specialty products. It will also enhance operator effectiveness by increasing their visibility and control of the process. Long-term maintenance efficiencies include improved diagnostics for troubleshooting, and a modular design for quick component replacement.

ďThis ABB project is an important investment that will help us continue to deliver value to our customers,Ē said John Sterzinar, VP Manufacturing & Engineering, Burrows Paper Group. ďOver the years, ABB has delivered the solutions and services that support our comprehensive strategic plan to expand our domestic paper and global packaging business groups.

The system includes a scanner with sensors for basis weight, moisture, ash, brightness, formation, and opacity; a Cross Direction (CD) Basis Weight Control System, including a new ABB xP Slice Profiler, and CD Moisture Control of an existing water spray. The system was installed on time and on budget, so the benefits of the improved measurement and control performance were quickly realized.

Dave Head, Senior Electrical Engineer at Burrows Paper, managed the four person team that ultimately made the decision to go with ABB. ďThe excellent support that ABB has in place for their systems was the deciding factor in our teamís selection of the ABB QCS,Ē he commented.

ABB and Burrows have a long history of working together. ABB installed the original QCS and other equipment at Mohawk Valley in the late 1980ís, and has delivered solutions and services to other Burrows facilities.

Burrows Paper Corporation operates four paper mills and five packaging converting facilities in the U.S., the Netherlands, and China. The Mohawk Valley mill produces 12,000 tons per year of specialty paper used for coffee filters and moist towelettes, as well as paper for other food and consumer uses. Burrows incorporates nearly 100 years of papermaking experience into its food packaging line of products and is one of only a few companies capable of producing light weight printable tissue paper from 7.5 to 30 pounds (12.2 to 48.9 gsm). The company offers Machine Glaze and Machine Finish paper grades for a variety of uses such as medical and food packaging, as well as many innovative industrial grade paper grade applications.

ABB (abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 145,000 people.
