    Abstract

    In both chemical and pulp and paper industry on-line monitoring of different chemicals will be needed to control the reagent concentrations added to the processes in order to improve the quality of the final products. VTT Chemical Technology has developed different on-line research methods to determine and specify soluble chemicals in various industrial processes. On-line capillary electrophoresis instrument (UCE) is being developed for on-line monitoring of inorganic and organic water-soluble compounds in the industrial processes. UCE provides an easy to maintain and rapid method for determination of ionic levels. On-line-set-up of the instrument include a patented separation capillary unit, a sampling unit, a detector and a computer based control unit. On-line UCE instument will be installed into process pilot plant for on-site testing and product development. In final stage the plan is to commercialize the instrument.
