ACA - Ash Content Analyzer

Determination of the total ash content (fillers and pigments) and the percentage distribution of the individual components

The emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer is a new measuring device for a vary fast, easy and accurate determination of

  • total ash content (fillers and pigments)
  • percentage distribution of the individual components

of mineral filler and pigment content in paper and board, for example

  • kaolin
  • calcium carbonate
  • titanium dioxide
  • talcum

Replacement of the time-consuming traditional combustion method

  • Availability of the results within seconds
  • High accuracy of measurements
  • Easy handling
  • Easy portable in a trolley
  • Savings in time, material and energy

Until now the parts of the single fillers and pigments were only determined by complex and time-consuming combustion methods with different temperatures.

By the use of the emtec ACA Ash Content Analyzer with its really new and innovative measuring procedure the total ash content (fillers and pigments) but also the percentage distribution of the single components can be determined without combustion of the samples.

The use of the new measuring device leads to substantial savings in material, time and energy with a simultaneous obvious increase of the measuring accuracy compared to traditional methods in the routine laboratory practices.
