Process Optimization within the Paper, Board and Tissue Production
On May 20th and 21st, emtec Electronic GmbH will participate at the “Future. Forum Paper” – the Austrian Paper Conference with trade show for pulp and paper industry in Graz.
During the two days emtec will present different testing instruments by which the process from the production of the pulp to the conversion to the finished product can be controlled and guided in the right direction to get an efficient process and the best possible quality with the lowest possible costs.
In the wet end it is extremely important to have detailed information about the charges of particles in the pulp suspension, which can be determined by the CAS Charge Analyzing System. Also important is the knowledge about the surface charge of the pulp fibers, which can be measured with the FPA Fiber Potential Analyzer. Furthermore, emtec Electronic developed a new Online measuring device FPO Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online, which measures the Zeta Potential of fibers directly in the process and delivers reliable and necessary information concerning the efficiency of chemicals in the process immediately.
In addition to the wet end, it is necessary to get an idea of the quality of the base paper after the production and of the finished product after converting. The EST12 Surface & Sizing Tester is one of the equipment for determining important paper surface properties such as hydrophoby and sizing as well as the porosity and pore structure, which have influences on the printability, coatability, and glueability.
Especially for tissue and nonwoven products, the TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer gives reliable and objective information about the real softness, smoothness/roughness, stiffness as well as the final hand feeling.
Another innovative device is one of the latest developments: the ACA Ash Content Analyzer. It allows the fast and accurate determination of the total mineral filler content as well as the percentage content of the individual filler components of paper and board. It is a useful alternative to the traditional combustion method.
