emtec Electronic at the KRONA Institute in St. Petersburg
emtec Electronic GmbH will participate at the IV Annual International State-of-the-Art Conference 2015 at the KRONA Institute in St. Petersburg in Russia with the topic "Modern Systems for Paper and Board Quality Control". On 18th February, Ms. Elena Beznosova will speak about "Predicting the surface behavior of paper and board during glueing and printing processes" and present some different Paper Testing Technology to optimize the production process of paper and board from the pulp to the finished product with the goal getting an efficient process and the best possible quality with the lowest possible costs.
For efficient process optimization, it is essential to look at both, the wet and dry end of paper and board production. 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 FPA – Fiber Potential Analyzer. Furthermore, emtec Electronic developed a new Online measuring device FPO – Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online, which measures the Zeta Potential of fibers directly during the production process and delivers immediately 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 steps within the conversion. This can be realized by the EST12 – Surface & Sizing Tester, which gives reliable and
objective information about the surface sizing respectively hydrophoby and the surface pore structure to predict the behavior of paper and board during glueing, printing and coating processes. How this functions will be explained in
detail by Ms. Elena Beznosova during her presentation on site.
