Automatic control stabilizes retention and charge at Julius Schulte Trebsen

Julius Schulte is a family owned paper producer since 1983, one of the leading German producers of corrugating medium roll paper and specialty papers with a production capacity 200 000 tonnes annually. When they were not able to get sufficient information of the white water consistencies or charge status, they decided to invest in Valmet Wet End Analyzer.

Summary
