Ackumen™ ECHOWISE® Pro technology

Entrained air is a variable that must be addressed in nearly every paper machine system. It is a disruptor, and when it is high and/or fluctuating, it impedes wet end drainage. When wet end drainage suffers, production and quality suffer.

The Ackumen™ ECHOWISE® Pro technology from Buckman uses real-time measurement to produce a continuous stream of entrained air information.

Hi-Op Paperboard PerFect Formation Analyzer (Hi-Op PPF) - Unveiled at TAPPICon!

A Breakthrough in Paperboard Formation Analysis on Sheets up to 3000 g/m²
– Sheet strength, print/coating quality, and converting performance can be improved with detailed and accurate formation analysis. Paperboard manufacturers can optimize formation in ways not possible with traditional Beta-ray single index instruments.

The Hi-Op Paperboard Perfect Formation Analyzer (Hi-Op PPF) expands formation analysis capabilities by measuring paperboard sheets for grammages up to 3000 g/m2. All generations of PPF provide measurement of formation beyond a single index measurement by sub-dividing formation, “flocs”, into 10 component size ranges from 0.4mm to 60mm.

Attendees have an open invitation to bring a sample sheet (minimum 100mm x 100mm) of high grammage paperboard.
