emtec Electronic GmbH will attend the "Zellcheming Expo 2014" in Frankfurt/Main, Germany – the 109th Annual Meeting and Exhibition. From June 24th until 26th, emtec will be present at the exhibition booth no. B73.
During the Zellcheming Expo, emtec will show a variety of testing instruments by which the complete production process can be controlled and guided in the right direction, to get an efficient process and the best possible quality with the
lowest possible costs.
In the wet end it is extremely important to have detailed information about the charges of particles in the pulp suspension, which can be determined by the CAS Charge Analyzing System. Also important is the knowledge about the surface charge of the pulp fibers, which can be measured with the lab equipment FPA Fiber Potential Analyzer. Furthermore, emtec Electronic developed the Online measuring device FPO Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online, which measures the Zeta Potential of fibers directly in the production process and immediately delivers reliable and necessary information concerning the dosing of chemicals to the pulp.
In addition to the wet end, it is necessary to get an idea of the quality of the base paper after the production for further converting steps. This can be realized by the EST12 Surface & Sizing Tester, which gives reliable and objective information to predict the behavior of paper and board during glueing, printing, and coating processes.
Beside these well-known devices, emtec will present another new, innovative development. With the ACA Ash Content Analyzer it is possible to determine the total mineral filler content as well as the percentage content of the typical fillers of the paper within seconds – without combustion resp. destruction of the samples. The usage of the ACA leads to substantial savings in material, man power, time, and energy with a simultaneous increase of the measuring accuracy
compared to traditional methods.
