INSIGHT:

Companía Papelera Pacifico (CPP) a recycle paper mill in Latin America, needed to increase production while still maintaining the strength of its products. The standard deviation of the strength tests was high, and due to this strength variability, the mill was reluctant to increase the machine speed and risk making off-spec production.

“Ultis allowed the mill to significantly increase their Ring Crush, a lab test completed to measure the paper’s physical qualities.”

INNOVATION:

Nalco Water had the solution, Ultis™ Dry² Strength Technology, a dry format chemical additive which improves both strength and runnability of paper products. The addition of Ultis, resulted in a 6% increase in the overall production, allowing the mill to significantly increase their Ring Crush strength test. This improvement in productivity provided the mill a $912,000/yr. increase in profit. “The results we delivered only increased the trust that CPP has in Nalco Water,” said Eugenio Farrera, district manager, Paper, Chile and Peru.
