Valmet Paper Lab offering enhanced for linerboard applications
Valmet Oyj’s trade press release on December 10, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. EET
Valmet enhances the offering of Valmet Paper Lab, an automated paper testing laboratory, for linerboard applications. In recent years, a large share of the Valmet Paper Lab deliveries has already been for linerboard applications. With a new S-Test module, Valmet Paper Lab offers a complete laboratory package for linerboard producers.
“The new S-Test module offers even more benefits by saving operators’ time, materials and providing real-time valuable quality information. In typical linerboard measurements, such as tensile strength, basis weight, short span compression (SCT), burst, caliper, surface properties, and porosity, Valmet Paper Lab has become a cornerstone of the laboratory automation,” says Bogdan Pavlovic, Business Manager, Board and Paper Analyzers, Automation business line, Valmet.
Faster and easier classification with S-Test
Compared to the time-consuming and user-dependent standard manual laboratory procedure known as Concora Medium Test (CMT), the S-Test offers a fast and easy method for estimating the strength classification of containerboard medium fluting. There is no need to corrugate or tape the test pieces, which makes the strength classification fast and easy, and provides significant savings in time and materials. The S-Test has been standardized by German Institute for Standardization and confirmed by The Cepi Container Board, a European industry association of producers of corrugated case materials.
Valmet Paper Lab is an automated board and paper testing laboratory.
