Paper manufacturing is one of the most complex industrial processes in the world today. It is, of course, impossible to manually control all the settings of a modern paper machine. The speed of the manufacturing process and the quality requirements of the finished product are such that it is only by using modern measurement and control techniques that it is possible to achieve quality targets.
Lorentzen & Wettre’s moisture sensors are used throughout the entire paper manufacturing process; in the forming, pressing, coating and drying sections and are finally applied to the finished paper.
The most common measurements carried out by Lorentzen & Wettre’s handheld portable meters are moisture content and felt permeability in the press section. Requirements for measurements of new properties in the process are continually on the increase.
