emtec Electronic reveals the new FPA touch! - Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer by AFG Analytic

on .

touch cas fpaDuring the Zellcheming-Expo 2016, emtec Electronic as the distribution partner of AFG Analytic presented for the first time the new FPA touch! - Fiber Potential Analyzer for the measurement of Zeta Potential of fibers. The device is the logical addition to the CAS touch! - Charge Analyzing System, which was newly introduced last year, for the measurement of particle charge in pulp suspension. The FPA touch! convinces by its compact size and the low weight. Conveniently, both devices can be transported together in one checked luggage or one device in one carry-on luggage. The special advantage lies in the easy and quick start of operation of the measuring device after transport. The handling can also be easily and intuitively done by the integrated touch screen or PC software. Thus, the proven measuring method was enhanced by new features of the AFG touch! series.

The company´s so-called TSA (Tissue Softness Analyser) is a well proven device for the tissue industry and might now conquer the nonwoven business as well. TSA was introduced and invented by Dipl.-Phys. Giselher Gruener in 2006 as a completely new measuring method which simulates human touch to a great extent during testing of a sample by hand.

Improved measurement results

"Research and testing for nonwovens" was one of the focus topics of the second day of the symposium. Within this scope, Alexander Grüner, Global Marketing and Business Development Manager at German testing equipment supplier emtec Electronic, explained a new method for process optimisation, quality assurance and R&D. Indeed, the objective technical device he presented could be a means to solve the problem of hand-feel tests: due to the different sensitivity of hand nerves, a lot of variations are observed, leading to biased results. According to Grüner, the TSA (Tissue Softness Analyser) which was originally developed for the tissue industry gives reliable and objective information about the real softness, smoothness/roughness, stiffness as well as the final hand feeling. The measurement is done in two steps - a sound analysis and a bode moving over the sample creating a vibration according to the surface topography - and the availability of these parameters opened a huge amount of chances for the optimisation of the production and converting processes, he said.
