ABB control products for optimum papermaking additives production by Shanghai DSSUN

Coating agent control solution by ABB partner based on DCS controllers, I/Os and HMI from ABB Compact Product Suite


ABB partner helps special chemicals and papermaking additives producer Shanghai DSSUN with a new system improving production efficiency, product quality, reducing labor and operational costs in the long term.

Shanghai DSSUN Group, founded in 2001, is a producer and distributor of special chemical products. Its main products are papermaking additives, coating and construction material additives, to name a few. Its production plant in Shandong Yanzhou produces 160,000 tons of calcium carbonate annually.

At the heart of the operation was the control system. And like the plant that contains it, the control system was old. Its aged condition prevented Shanghai DSSUN from meeting production demand and ensuring product quality.

Another challenge posted was the application level of Shanghai DSSUN’s operators. They required significant support to enhance their abilities to handle or manage the application.
