November 15, 2010 - 19:25

KISTA, Sweden , Nov. 16, 2010 (Press Release) -In October 2010 Lorentzen & Wettre sold the one hundredth L&W Fiber Tester in the world to Fuji Film in Japan. L&W Fiber Tester is an advanced automatic laboratory analyser of fibre morphology.

L&W Fiber Tester entered the market only five years ago and has had steady annual sales. These systems are distributed across the world with a fairly even split between Europe, North- and South America and Asia.

"Our customers have shown much appreciation for L&W Fiber Tester. It has many unique features and is a very modern and sophisticated system" says Mr. Håkan Karlsson, product manager at Lorentzen & Wettre.

L&W Fiber Tester is an automatic laboratory analyser for the morphological analysis of fibres. It measures the length of the fibres, weight per unit of length (coarseness), width, shape factor, kink, shives, fibre mix and fine material content. The total measurement cycle is made within six minutes and presents comprehensive statistics. The automated measurement technology enables frequent analysis of the pulp quality and is optimized for laboratories. The instrument is a bench-top model with a compact design making it easy to place in any laboratory.

Online- and inline measurements

The new generation of fibre testers also includes L&W Pulp Tester, an online measuring system with automatic samplers in the process, and L&W Fiber Quality Transmitter, an inline sensor for fibre morphology measurements. The entire programme measures standardised fibre lengths.
