Valmet has launched a new Valmet Optical Consistency Measurement (Valmet OC2R), which has been developed for recycled pulp manufacturing applications, as well as general stock preparation applications in paper, tissue, and board.
Valmet OC2R shares the total consistency measurement method utilized in the original Valmet Optical Consistency transmitter with the added capability of ash content available as a second measured value. Particularly in low-consistency measurements, Valmet’s optical transmitters are frequently the only possible measurement technique to provide reliable results. Valmet OC2R offers easy and low-cost installation with a measuring probe that makes insertion and removal possible without requiring special tools or a process stop.
For mechanical and chemical pulp, as well as for recycled fibre furnishes, Valmet OC2R is an ideal choice for control applications, from re-pulping and screening all the way to the machine chest.
