LEIPZIG, Germany, April 13, 2018 (Press Release) -Emtec Electronic presents its measuring innovations and proven methods to the paper and packaging professionals at the PaperCon 2018 from April 15 - 18, 2018 in Charlotte, NC, USA. The developer and manufacturer of measuring equipment will participate at the PaperCon with Technidyne, its US sales partner, and will be present at the Technidyne booth no. 812. Additionally, this year Mr. Alexander Gruener from emtec will introduce the topic “Nondestructive Qualitative and Quantitative Measurement of the Filler Content of Paper and Board” at the New Technology Showcase on April 17, 2018 at 11:17 am. On the same day, he will also present the new method to optimize the filler content in paper and board at the Poster Session of the PaperCon.
The new measuring method to measure the mineral filler content of the ACA Ash Content Analyzer, which will be presented, is nondestructive, quick, easy and accurate. Typical mineral filler and pigment content in paper and board, such as calcium carbonate, kaolin/talcum, titanium dioxide, and the total mineral filler content in percent are determined. It enables optimal process control due to instant availability of measuring results, and helps to narrow down the specifications for the filler content in the finished product and therefore to optimize the consumption of fillers.
Moreover, stand visitors can view the following measuring equipment at the Technidyne booth for the paper, board and tissue industry:
FPA touch! Fiber Potential Analyzer and CAS touch! Charge Analyzing System
The two lab devices for the measurement of the zeta potential of fibers and the particle charge are of the latest technological standard. Based on their significantly smaller size and lower weight than comparable devices, they allow for a comfortable carriage (one device in a transport case with carry-on luggage size, or both devices combined in one regular-sized transport case), and leave more space in the laboratory. The customers appreciate especially the easiness of use.
TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer
The multifunctional measuring device determines the individual softness parameters and automatically computes the hand feel (HF) of tissue products. Stand visitors can bring their samples for comparison of the three single parameters of softness: Real Softness, Smoothness, and Stiffness. The unique measuring device can be used in the R&D, QA or production lab with different PC software available. An update for the TSA is now available for customers.
EST12 Surface & Sizing Tester
The special tester determines those surface parameters of paper and board, which are relevant for the converting process, in particular the surface sizing / hydrophobicity and surface porosity. With its help, converting properties, such as printability, gluability, coatability and dusting tendency can be predicted. It enables the optimal runnability during the finishing or converting process of paper/board. An according modular system PDA.C02 Penetration Dynamics Analyzer for more applications is available. Stand visitors can bring their paper and board samples of the same type and application to compare their surface pore structure and hydrophobicity.
The emtec and Technidyne team at the stand will be happy to help concerning any further questions.
