emtec Electronic at the Maqpaper 2014 in Igualada, Spain
emtec Electronic GmbH will participate the "Maqpaper 2014" in Igualada, Spain, near Barcelona, where suppliers and producers of the pulp, paper and cardboard industry meet and greet. From April 02nd until 03rd, we will attend the exhibition together with IDM test – our representative for Spain and Portugal.
During the Maqpaper exhibition, emtec will present different testing instruments by which the process from the production of the pulp to the conversion to the finished product can be controlled and guided in the right direction to get an efficient process and the best possible quality with the lowest possible cost.
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. The availability of these paper properties opens a huge amount of chances for the optimization of the paper and board production and converting processes.
