Interstate Paper, US manufacturer of kraft linerboard in Riceboro, Georgia, has completed a $1 million project to replace the five natural gas start-up burners and Burner Management System (BMS) on its 40-year-old black liquor recovery boiler on 10 October 2009.

The burners are used sparingly during normal operation, however, their reliability and the Burner Management System are a necessity for the safe operation of the recovery boiler.

The new burner panels and valve skids are the visible part of the project while the conversion of the burner management system from an old relay panel to a modern Distributed Control System (DCS) is the core of the project.

The project enabled the boiler to meet all of the current Black Liquor Recovery Boiler Advisory Committee’s and the insurance company recommendations. The conversion of the BMS to computer-based controls fits well with long-term plans to move more of the Power and Recovery operations to a DCS.

This project makes the recovery boiler operation safer and more reliable for many years to come.
