Honeywell delivers process, quality control to China's largest containerboard maker

Honeywell will supply its Experion Process, Machine and Drives (PMD), Da Vinci quality control system and ProFlow and AquaTrol cross-direction control system to China-based Nine Dragons Paper Ltd.


Honeywell will supply its Experion Process, Machine and Drives (PMD), Da Vinci quality control system and ProFlow and AquaTrol cross-direction control system to China-based Nine Dragons Paper Ltd ., one of the world’s largest containerboard producers.

Nine Dragons is expanding operations to increase production capacity from the current 5.35 million to 10.15 million tons per year by 2009. To meet the increased demand, it will use the Experion PMD and Da Vinci systems to control paper machines at its newest mill in Chongqing, as well as new machines at existing mills in Dongguan and Taicang.

Nine Dragons makes a wide range of high-quality packaging paperboard products such as linerboard, which is used to make corrugated cartons. The company currently operates mills in Dongguan and Taicang, located in southern and eastern China, respectively.

Experion can unify operations by integrating subsystems throughout a manufacturing plant to improve production quality. It keeps processes running at optimum levels and provides operators meaningful information they need to make decisions. In paper mills, Experion can be used to control systems such as paper production lines from a single operator station. Nine Dragons’ Experion system will include more than 27,000 input/output points across all three mills.

Additionally, Honeywell is providing Nine Dragons 10 Da Vinci 4000 scanners that precisely measure paper quality using a suite of online sensors. The system can provide quality data, process information, historical trending and statistical analysis, among other features.

“We are proud to continue our relationship with Nine Dragons as they grow rapidly. Meeting a growing demand means more than increasing production,” said Andrew Hird, Asia-Pacific Director for Pulp and Paper, Honeywell Process Solutions.
