Earliest possible measurement for better formation
OnV FlocSpotter is a formation sensor that allows measurement directly in the wire section. With multi-layer paper, the formation of each individual layer can be detected early in the process.
OnV FlocSpotter detects quality problems in the wire section, enabling improvement measures to be initiated early in the papermaking process. In order to correct the formation, various stock and machine parameters such as consistency, retention agent dosing and the jet-to-wire ratio can be changed. The improved formation increases the uniformity of the board web and printability, thereby improving product quality.
OnV FlocSpotter is used directly in the wire section. Due to the measurement of individual layers, it is especially suitable for board and packaging grades. With graphic paper machines, it allows faster detection of stock input fluctuations or changes in process parameters.
