Metso Power, BLRBAC and the Importance of Keeping Workers Safe

Working with black liquor recovery boilers can be a dangerous endeavor. The chemicals used are incredibly caustic, and can do a great deal of damage if they come into contact with human skin. Many workers have been known to suffer injury or death while working with these boilers. That’s what led to the formation of BLRBAC, the Black Liquor Recovery Boiler Advisory Committee. The Committee is made up of insurance companies, boiler manufacturers and paper company professionals who are involved in operating, insuring and manufacturing these boilers.

BLRBAC’s mission is an important one, as is any mission to keep workers safe. We’re proud to provide a Smelt Spout System, Smelt-X and other SMaRT (Safety Matters around Recovery Tasks) products that help make this goal a reality.
