Troubleshooting gives you solutions to problems

Processes and products are often contaminated for various reasons and lead to driveability problems that create financial and environmental penalties and possible complaints from customers. RISE's solid expertise and equipment can help you with both identification, troubleshooting and solutions.


Do you have problems with deposits, stains in the process? Want to know what a specific product has for fiber composition? These are some of the issues that Trouble Shooting takes care of. With the help of our solid competence and our highly advanced instruments as well as well-developed databases, we can produce information about the composition and origin of the pollution.

We often need to use several of the techniques below to solve a problem because the problems are often complex. The most common types of samples are pulp, paper and cardboard. We also look at scrapes, dots, rubber cloth, printed end product, solutions, incrustations, metal surfaces. Contact us and we will discuss the problem solution together.


We use several different types of methods to arrive at a solution. These are the most common:

  • Light microscopy
  • Scanning electron microscopy SEM
  • FT-IR
  • GC
  • ICP
  • Ion chromatography
  • Mappings

Troubleshooting gives you solutions to problems within the process and product

Innovation area

Biorefinery, Plastics, Bioeconomy, Circular transition, Packaging, Chemical processes and products, Chemical and biological analysis, Control, Corrosion, Pulp and paper, Material transition, Perception, Production and manufacturing, Surface technology


Price on tender

Delivery time

Analysis results are delivered by e-mail, normally within 15 working days of the samples arriving to us. With reservation for samples that require special treatment. Express analyzes can be obtained at a surcharge by agreement.


Recommendations for sampling:

Scrape in a jar when sampling

Do not mark too close to the defect / problem

Exposure is performed on MoRe

Send references
- Process and functional chemicals / materials
- Good reference test to compare with problem / bad test

Supports the UN sustainability goals

9. Industry, innovation and infrastructure
12. Responsible consumption and production

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry identifies many materials

Materials and processes need to identify their products. Using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry facilitates the work and it is often used in connection with problem solving and environmental issues. The instrument is very usef…

Light microscopy quickly shows small details

With light microscopy, you can quickly get an overview of the problem and all images are displayed in color. It is often used in connection with product development, problem solving and support to end customers. To gain an underst…

Scanning electron microscopy sees surface structure and elements

Processes are often warm and humid that create good environments for bacteria, precipitates and other undesirable phenomena that contribute to disruption and degradation of end products. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM/XDS) has …

Identification of various organic and inorganic compounds

FTIR Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, is mainly used for positive identification of various organic and inorganic compounds in complex samples. Even very small samples, such as dots and stains in pulp and paper, can be stu…

Analysis of anthraquinone in anthraquinone products and dispersions

Anthraquinone consists of yellow acicular crystals and is a form of dispersion used in the cooking of sulphate pulp to improve yield. To get a consistent quality of the process, it is important to know the exact amount of anthraqu…

Detect rosin in products

Rosin, a collective name for resin acids, is found naturally in extractives from pine, spruce and larch trees and therefore ends up to a very large extent in the tall oil after cooking. Allergies to rosin are present and we can id…

Separation of chemical compounds

Separating and purifying various chemical liquids such as cooking liquids, yeast tanks and black liquor is important in traditional forest industry process liquids and materials, as well as in the biorefinery area.

Pulp technology

The pulp production plays a central role in the bioeconomy, the transition to a fossil-free society and circular processes. The main part of fiber line is the cooking, where wood is treated with chemicals in order to liberate the …
