Advancing Pulp and Paper Technology: Emtec Electronic Showcases Dynamic Testing Solutions at Zellcheming 2024

Leipzig-based testing equipment manufacturer emtec Electronic will present innovative solutions for reducing broke, optimizing process control and automation, and enhancing product quality at the Zellcheming Expo in Wiesbaden, Germany, from June 18-20, 2024.

Balancing costs and top-tier quality while maintaining sustainable production is challenging in today's competitive market. Emtec Electronic addresses this with innovative devices for the paper manufacturing industry.  These devices provide critical insights into particle charge and zeta potential (inline measurement possible) in the pulp composition, as well as paper properties such as mineral filler content, surface characteristics, and haptics. This enables informed decision-making, resulting in superior product quality, fewer rejects, reduced machine stops, and lower resource consumption.

The ACA Ash Content Analyzer offers a rapid, non-destructive method to measure total mineral filler content and the percentage distribution of individual mineral fillers in paper and board. Unlike traditional combustion methods, which are time-consuming and labor-intensive, the ACA delivers accurate results within 60 seconds. This efficiency helps manufacturers optimize filler usage, minimize process fluctuations, and reduce energy consumption.

Moreover, the FPO Fiber Potential Analyzer Online provides a digital and automated solution for monitoring the zeta potential of fibers and fillers in the wet-end. The FPO can be installed at various points in the paper machine, integrating seamlessly into the production process and providing measurement data to the mill’s process control system or a data server. It automatically handles sampling, measuring, and cleaning with minimal maintenance, resulting in substantial material, time, and energy savings.

The emtec portfolio is further complemented by the CAS touch! Charge Analyzing System and the FPA touch! Fiber Potential Analyzer. These two portable laboratory devices are often used together to precisely determine the particle charge and zeta potential in the wet-end. The TSA Tactile Sensation Analyzer determines objective numbers for how tissue paper subjectively feels to the touch, providing a reliable haptic analysis of a material in about a minute.

Attendees of the Zellcheming Expo are invited to explore these innovative technologies and interact with emtec's experts at booth 164 in the North Hall. On-site representatives Stefan Ruebesam (Sales Area Manager), Ulli Kasten (Global Sales Manager), and Sandra Vogt (Global Marketing Manager) will be available to offer detailed insights into each device's functionalities and benefits and to discuss how emtec's solutions can be customized to meet specific production needs.
