Process Control

The Process Control Division promotes the advancement of technology and its applications in the fields of process control, electrical engineering and mill-wide information systems within the pulp and paper and allied industries. The division will encourage the development of technical information, professional practices and technical guidelines; coordinate committee information and recognize member achievements. Through its activities, the division will offer its members opportunities for enhancing leadership skills and for furthering professional development.​​

"Our goal for the Process Control Division is to share unique and different perspectives in a collaborative format so that Pulp and Paper professionals have the information needed to stay on the leading edge of Process Control technology and best practices.   We also desire to develop and bring in a new generation of Process Control professionals."

Dave Maddux, Valmet, TAPPI Process Control Division Past Chair

QCS Sensor Correlation Common Interest Group  

- To create and promote principles and best practices regarding dynamic sensor correlation between online QCS sensors and offline quality measurements. Our goal is to put paper mills on the right path to success by ensuring measurements from the online sensors and the offline quality measurement closely track each other. Proper sensor correlation improves quality measurement accuracy, enhances paper machine performance by significant savings in raw material usage, increases efficiency by reducing rejects and energy consumption and enhanced control.

Quality Control Systems Education Common Interest Group  

This function of this CIG is to provide education material to members in the field of Quality Control Systems (QCS). QCS are special systems used in the paper industry to measure and control paper properties in two dimensions (cross and machine direction). This CIG has produced a TAPPI publication, “Paper Machine Quality Control Systems Volume I: Measurement Systems and Product Variability” and conducted mini-tutorials on its content. The CIG is working to publish Vol II on QCS Controls.
