Valmet IQ for containerboard

It is critical for good bonding of fluting to liner that the glue achieves a degree of penetration in the paper. Web moisture is one of the factors controlling penetration but difficulties in making an accurate measurement have until now excluded any form of continuous moisture control.

New infrared moisture measurement in combination with temperature can now control the pre-heaters and steam box, minimizing the moisture variations between the top and bottom surfaces that cause bonding problems and final sheet warping. By using specific wavelengths of infrared (IR) to determine water content, fiber and other molecules in the paper web, the new IR sensors have overcome the deficiencies of earlier moisture sensors to provide a reliable single point or cross-directional profile measurements suitable for closed-loop control.
