Valmet Fiberline Analyzer

Valmet Fiberline Analyzer (formerly known as Valmet Kappa Analyzer, Kappa QC)

Based on market leader experience, Valmet Fiberline Analyzer (formerly known as Valmet Kappa Analyzer) is a multi-analyzer platform for key fiberline measurements. It is the only pulp quality analyzer for the needs of the entire fiberline, measuring kappa, brightness, HexA, lignin, fibers, and shives.

Complete fiberline management

Valmet Fiberline Analyzer enables pulp makers to improve total pulp quality management and production yield, boost process stability and minimize chemical usage and production costs from the digester blow line right up to final pulp storage.
