KPM, a member of the ABB Group, announces its KC/7 Microwave Consistency Transmitter – a transmitter that measures total consistency of mixed pulps, different quality pulps, and pulps with fillers. With the reliable and well tested microwave true-phase measurement technology, it offers excellent measurement accuracy. Additionally the transmitter's straightforward design, with no moving parts, guarantees high uptime without maintenance.
The transmitter is unaffected by variations in pulp grade (fiber length, freeness, kappa, brightness, color and shives) unlike other transmitters based on optical and shear force technologies. It is applicable close to the paper machine, after the mixing chest and machine chest, and it is especially recommended at paper machines for mixed furnishes and fillers. In pulp production it is applicable before first bleaching stage, after bleaching before drying machine, at mixed pulps and fillers, broke and recycled pulps. Further, the KC/7 Microwave Consistency Transmitter is resistant to changes in process conditions such as flow rate, pressure, temperature, and turbulence.
"We have the knowledge, products and experience to help customers achieve measurement objectives, and this new microwave consistency transmitter is a further support to our customer", says Urpo Heikkinen, Managing Director KPM.
