Temperature monitoring solution for board and paper machines

Temperature monitoring with ThermSense

Improved tail threading and runnability with Valmet Sheet Temperature Detector

Valmet Sheet Temperature Detector is a non-contacting temperature monitoring system. It measures either sheet or dryer surface temperature depending on case-specific circumstances and the operating status of the dryer section.

The appropriate number of sensors is placed across the machine, and the system is hooked up to the machine control system and/or a local display.

The system can improve tail threading by ensuring the right threading temperature. In the case of coating application, sheet temperature information is needed to ensure proper coating penetration. Sheet temperature detector can also be utilized to monitor and improve the operation of steam and condensate systems.
