Also, this year in November, emtec Electronic GmbH will attend the ATIP 2018 in Grenoble in France, together with its French representative ODL Paper Service. At exhibition booth no. 2 the company will present a variety of testing instruments by which the complete production process – from the wet end to the finished products – can be controlled and guided in the right direction, to get an efficient process and the best possible quality with the lowest possible costs. To meet steadily the changing demands and requirements in the paper and board industry, the focus is again on further developments and innovations.
Displayed at the booth will be the state-of-the-art CAS touch! to measure the particle charge and the FPA touch! to measure the surface charge of fibers (zeta potential). Both devices help to get information about the efficiency of the chemicals, which are added during the paper, board and tissue production.
Besides this, the EST12 emtec Surface & Sizing Tester is shown. A device to determine important and for the converting relevant paper surface properties such as surface hydrophobia / sizing as well as the surface porosity, which influence printability, coatability and gluability of paper and board.
The ACA Ash Content Analyzer enables the determination of the mineral filler content without combustion, that means without destruction of the samples, within seconds. Both, the total mineral filler content, as well as the individual filler components (e.g. calcium carbonate, kaolin/talcum, titanium dioxide, iron oxide) and their percentage distribution are given.
Especially for tissue and nonwoven products, the TSA Tissue Softness Analyzer gives reliable and objective information about the three basic parameters, which determine the human feeling, the softness, roughness and stiffness. From these three, an overall hand feel value can be calculated. The availability of the three individual parameters opens a huge amount of chances for the optimization of the tissue production and converting processes.
