Customer case:

Retention measurement for a secure start-up

Four Valmet RM3 sensors were supplied to Stora Enso Varkaus to measure wet end consistencies with the exclusive ability to monitor both total and true ash consistency from the process for active fines retention management.

The operation looks good and we are using the units for control. With regard to measurements in general, what counts is quality, not quantity. The measurement data must be correct, making decisions based on incorrect data is not good!”
