Fully automatic and accurate determination of the Zeta Potential of fibers and fillers
The emtec FPO Fiber Potential Analyzer Online is an innovative measuring device for the fully automatic and accurate determination of the Zeta Potential of fibers and fillers.
ONLINE Measurement of the Zeta Potential of stock suspensions
- fully automatic operation: sample-taking • measuring • cleaning
- high accuracy of measurement and reproducibility
- data transfer by standard interface to the process control system / optional data storage on Internet server
- device handling and display of measuring results by touch screen
- savings in material, time and energy
The Zeta Potential of fibers and fillers was determined until now with the help of laboratory measuring devices (FPA – Fiber Potential Analyzer from emtec/AFG). As a result it was not possible to intervene immediately into the production process, because of the time difference between the sample-taking and the present measuring data. Furthermore, personnel efforts are needed for laboratory measurements, so a permanent process control is not possible.
The new emtec FPO Fiber Potential Analyzer Online uses the established measuring principle of the laboratory measuring device FPA and delivers accurate results fast and reliable. Especially the low-maintenance operation has to be pointed out.
By the use of the innovativeFPOtheimmediate intervention into the production processbecause of unwanted measuring results is possible. That's why its application leads to obvious savings in material, time and energy.
