With a completely new and innovative measuring principle, the emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer measures the total filler content and the individual fillers, which are typically used in the paper industry, of paper and board. Compared to the traditional combustion method, the ACA measures non-destructive and provides the results in less than a minute.
With the combustion method according to ISO 2144, DIN 54370, TAPPI T 413 and 211, which is traditionally applied in the paper industry, the total content and a few selected individual fillers can only be determined through an extremely time- and energy-consuming and in routine operation relatively inaccurate combustion of the samples at different temperatures (+/- 5%, operator dependent!). The combustion method is also disadvantageous due to its destructive measuring procedure.
By the use of the emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer with its new and innovative measuring principle the total ash content (fillers and pigments), but also the percentage content of the typical fillers in the paper industry can be determined within seconds without combustion of the samples, i.e., non-destructive.
The quick measuring procedure leads to an almost instant availability of measuring results and therefore allows for an indeed immediate reaction to changes in the process:
