To optimize and control the pulp and papermaking processes, operators need frequent and fast pulp quality information. According to Lorentzen & Wettre, it is possible with the L&W Pulp Tester to get standardized measurement results online with the same accuracy as in the laboratory.
The L&W Pulp Tester is a comprehensive system for automatic quality control of the pulping process.
“The system provides reliable and fast fibre measurements. A small measurement gap according to the standard for fibre length measurements secures a perfect alignment of the fibres in the measurement cell, which is unique for online fibre analyzers,” says Hkan Karlsson, product manager for the L&W Pulp Tester.
The system is built up of different modules, for example: fibre morphology (length, width, deformations, fines, etc.) including fully automatic measurement of coarseness; optical properties (brightness, colour, and ERIC 950); and standard freeness (Canadian Standard Freeness and Schopper-Riegler). Shives content and distribution are measured with optical technique and with better statistical significance than ever.
Gravimetrical consistency measurements give a new dimension to many pulp properties besides coarseness.
L&W Pulp Tester can handle up to 10 process samplers and has a cycle time as low as four minutes.
