  • Immediate accessibility of the results
 Features: Developed in cooperation with Ashland
DCS Deposit Control System Problems caused by deposits in piping and containers are well known and they may lead to impaired quality, reduced runnability and increased costs.
Deposits are substances which stick to surfaces, generate agglomerates and therewith congest filters, felts and nozzles which lead to trouble in the production process.
Whether or not deposits are generated depends on the method of white water treatment as well as on the successful use of a deposit controlling concept.
The measurement of the thickness and pace of growth of those deposits at certain points in the paper machine is an important requirement to enable an optimal reaction.
With the Deposit Control System DCS a new, modern and very reliable tool is available in order to help optimizing the conduction of the process. A fast return on investment is ensured.
