Checking the paper profile: online, offline and in the laboratory
The ProfileCheck facilitates meaningful checking of the paper web and allows early detection of possible problems through comparison of online and offline measurements and laboratory data.
For stable machine operation, the actual status of the longitudinal and cross profile should be recorded and compared with the measurements of the online measuring system. Paper samples are taken from machine direction and cross direction for this profile check.
Then a high-resolution paper sample analysis of the profiles is done in the Voith Paper laboratory. Parameters such as basis weight, ash, thickness, fiber content, gloss and transmission are measured, analyzed, evaluated and compared with the measurements of the online measuring system. Finally, Voith specialists assess the data, create a benchmark and give their recommendations for optimization.
The ProfileCheck monitors the paper web, optimizes and ensures the quality of the paper profile, improves the performance of online quality measuring systems, stabilizes and optimizes the entire paper manufacturing process.
