Application

In the digester, the action of chemical dissolution removes the lignin binder, thereby exposing and freeing the cellulose fibres. During the cooking process according to the alkaline sulphate method, the fibres are fed into the digester by means of steam pressure. To enable fully automatic operation of the digester, a point level detection of the filling is required. The vessel pressure also needs to be carefully monitored throughout this process.
