Users benefit greatly from the innovative, reliable quality monitoring technology developed by PTS: The combination of continuous sampling (following INGEDE method no. 7) and mass flow-related evaluations makes it possible to assess the quality of paper for recycling within minutes at an extremely high level of confidence.
PTS regards calendering as one of the most important finishing processes that is greatly influenced by all paper and coating parameters. The equipment of the pilot coater has been designed especially to allow different papers coated with different coating colours to be examined in order to evaluate optimum coating and calendering conditions. The targets are clear: less calendering to achieve the same gloss whilst saving energy and, thus, costs, and to enhance paper quality (more bulk, higher stiffness/whiteness/opacity) with fewer negative effects.
