Metso's metal-to-metal precision adds to consistency transmitter durability

June 07, 2010 - 20:02

HELSINKI, June 8, 2010 (Press Release) -Metso has developed Metso Rotating Consistency Transmitter to better meet user needs. This universal transmitter suits all pulp and papermaking applications. It is based on Metso's long, in-depth experience in developing world-class consistency transmitters featuring several patents.

Metso Rotating Consistency Transmitter features shear force measurement principle, but with a new approach. It features Direct TorqueTMtechnology, which replaces traditional force balance technology and gives improved measurement stability and faster response.

The new consistency transmitter has an optimal design, which results in higher reliability, easier maintenance, longer lifetime and lower lifetime costs.

One of the factors behind the longer lifetime is the patented Metal-to-Metal PrecisionTMsealing construction that replaces the conventional structure with rubber components. The lighter design with fewer parts lowers the maintenance need to the minimum. It is easy to maintain it onsite by the mill staff, partly even when the process is running.

Due to its modular structure, Metso Rotating Consistency Transmitter provides a mill with the opportunity to cost-efficiently update its old consistency transmitter technology into modern technology. By making use of its existing installed base, the mill is able to buy only the necessary modules and build up a package that best meets its particular needs. Reusing old parts instead of disposing of them is a way to support sustainability, too.

Metso Rotating Consistency Transmitter is fast to install, and its installation costs are low. In case of replacements, the costs are even lower because the existing installation set-up can be used. Calibration tuning and recipe change can easily be done during production. These new solutions increase the transmitter's availability time and reliability compared with traditional technology.
