Valmet launches a completely redesigned Valmet Microwave Consistency Measurement – Valmet MCA (patent pending) for pulp and paper makers. Valmet MCA is now provided by digital electronics and the new Direct Sweep Detection measurement to offer higher performance measurement sensitivity and accuracy than competing analogue designs.
With a wider applicability, the new Twin Blade sensor can also be used to measure unscreened pulp. The sensor’s completely redesigned clamp mounted probe is suitable for the much higher conductivity environment of chemical pulping.
Commissioning and operation have also been enhanced with the Valmet Bridge user interface, a new 7” touch screen control platform designed for use with Valmet process sensors and analysers. With comprehensive diagnostics, Wi-Fi and Industrial Internet ready capabilities, Valmet Bridge user interface provides a user-friendly experience and intuitive access to transmitter operation and remote services from Valmet.
Valmet MCA measures total consistency of the pulp process stream independent of fiber length, freeness, wood species or blend. The measurement is not affected by flow rate, brightness or colour and enables better control for more efficient production, improved quality and economic savings with fewer process upsets and less off grade product. With low lifetime costs, the sensor is simple to install and requires no regular maintenance to keep commissioning and running costs to a minimum.
