ASD Inc. introduces the QualitySpec® K-B Sample Press to complement the QualitySpec K-B NIR Analyzer released last year. Together, the NIR analyzer and the Sample Press comprise a total solution for simultaneous at-line measurement of Kappa number and brightness on wet pulp. The sample press replaces timely and labour-intensive methods with an automated press that eliminates operator-to-operator variability in sample quality. This ultimately provides for tighter, more accurate process control, and the ability to feed forward and feed back information on Kappa number and brightness.

“With the QualitySpec K-B and Sample Press system, the pulp and paper industry has an improved process optimization solution allowing for increased frequency of in-process measurements, and greatly reduced need for wet chemistry and the corresponding consumable

toxic chemicals,” says Chris Pederson, ASD technical specialist for pulp and paper applications. “More frequent testing drastically reduces the consumption of delignification and bleaching chemicals and waste, and product consistency is maximized, potentially saving each mill hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.”

ASD collaborates with industrial professionals, analytical researchers, and remote sensing scientists to provide reliable, high performance analytical instrumentation.
