“Built on well-known technology and the long experience, the new measurement is robust and built to last. The patented technology ensures rapid measurement response and fast reaction to consistency variations,” says Sami Laaksonen, Product Manager, Automation Systems business line, Valmet.

Reliable fiber consistency measurement
The redesigned Valmet Rotating Consistency Measurement has a new mechanical design and an electronic solution to improve reliability. Thanks to high sensitivity, the third generation is as accurate as the previous one. The simplified design makes on-site maintenance easier and faster for low overall lifetime costs.

Based on shear force measurement technology, Valmet Rotating Consistency Measurement has excellent performance even in challenging environments with high temperature or pressure and abrasive chemicals. A modular design secures a universal use covering consistency range from 1,5 to 16 percent.

New user interface for enhanced operation
Commissioning, calibration, and operation have been enhanced with a new Valmet Link user interface, a flexible platform with secure remote connection possibilities. With a graphical display and a clear menu structure, set-up and operation are fast and easy. The intuitive user interface and bigger display enable easier calibration and give a better overview of the calibration data. The user interface is prepared for different communication protocols and can be updated for future functionalities.
