Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

FPInnovations, Pointe-Claire, Que., Canada, this week announced a new license agreement with Technidyne Corp., New Albany, Ind., USA, to bring FPInnovations' new macrostickies measurement technology, FPAutoSpeck, to the worldwide pulp and paper industry. The FPAutoSpeck is a fully automated analyzer that determines light and heavy macrostickies in recycled pulp using image analysis.

FPInnovations notes that this technology is the first in the world to provide real-time feedback since it automatically counts and categorizes macrocontaminants from up to four different process lines. Whether the unit is operated in the manual mode for the survey of contaminants in a mill or in the automatic mode for control, it saves time and money by providing immediate feedback to operators when evaluating incoming stock, screening, and chemical processes, according to FPInnovations.Technidyne will provide installation, training, instrument repair, parts sales, preventative maintenance, and 24-hour customer support.

FPInnovations will be presenting research and application information on the FPAutoSpeck technology at the upcoming TAPPI PEERS Conference in Norfolk, Va., October 17-20. Technidyne will be exhibiting the FPAutoSpeck in Booth No. 5.
