Valmet has introduced a new additional option for both new and existing users of the Valmet Fiber Image Analyzer. The new option, known as – Option C, will enable pulp and paper manufacturers to realise the true potential of their raw material by presenting correlations between measured fiber properties along with its impact on the end-product quality.

A variety of pulp quality parameters, including – tensile, burst, tear, short span compression (SCT), porosity, or softness, can be assessed by the analyser with results that are fully customisable. Moreover, the leading technology provider brings additional communication protocols enabling easier integration with mill systems to provide operators with faster access to the effects of furnish and process changes. This provides optimum use of raw materials together with improved product quality.
