Valmet has released a redesigned Valmet Rotating Consistency Measurement (Valmet Rotary) for pulp and paper producers. The redesigned measurement technology reportedly has a new mechanical design and an electronic solution to improve reliability. Due to high sensitivity, the third generation is as accurate as the previous one, says the company in a press statement.

The company shares that with the latest technology, a new user interface and easier maintenance, the transmitter continues to offer fibre consistency measurement for critical applications. The simplified design makes on-site maintenance easier and faster for low overall lifetime costs.

Based on shear force measurement technology, the product reportedly performs well even in challenging environments with high temperature or pressure and abrasive chemicals. A modular design secures a universal use covering consistency range from 1,5 to 16 percent.


Commissioning, calibration and operation have been enhanced with a new Valmet Link user interface, a flexible platform with secure remote connection possibilities. With a graphical display and a clear menu structure, set-up and operation are easy, says Valmet. The user interface and bigger display reportedly enable easier calibration and give a better overview of the calibration data. The user interface is prepared for different communication protocols and can be updated for future functionalities.
