During the Asian Paper Show, emtec will present different testing instruments by which the complete process of paper production from the pulp to the finished product can be controlled and guided in the right direction to get an efficient process and the best possible quality at 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. The availability of these three parameters opens a huge amount of chances for the optimization of the tissue production and converting processes. 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.
During the New Applied Technology Conference on Friday, April 25th at 11.00 am, Mr. Giselher Gruener will explain in detail the measuring principles of the "Two New Innovative Devices to Increase the Efficiency in the Paper & Board Production Process" - the ACA Ash Content Analyzer and the FPO Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online.
