Captain instructed the first officer to switch the cabin pressure controller to manual and close the outflow valves, however cabin altitude kept increasing. The captain decided to perform an emergency descent to 8000ft. The flight was then given priority for landing to runway 18L. An uneventful landing followed. This incident was not reported to the authorities.
