Automation for stock preparation


Final sheet properties and web runnability are virtually dependent on the stability of the dry solid flows that make up the blended furnish, the fiber quality developed in refining, and the addition of fillers and chemicals in the right amounts. Measurements and controls for furnish management ensure the functional properties of the sheet are maintained on-spec during steady state operation and during production changes. Papermakers manage furnish quality changes quickly, smoothly, with minimal waste. A consistent furnish forms and drains predictability, stabilizing quality and improving runnability.
