New Tissue Analyzer Tests Softness, Smoothness, Stiffness

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The TSA (Leipzig, Germany) Tissue Softness Analyzer is an innovative new tissue testing instrument. The new type of device will be used for the objective and reliable measurement of tissue "handfeel" properties such as real softness, smoothness/roughness, and stiffness. The availability of these three parameters opens a huge amount of chances for the optimization of tissue production and converting processes.

Additionally, emtec Electronic is introducing some measuring devices for the wet end area—the CAS Charge Analyzing System for determining particle charge of filtrates and the FPA Fiber Potential Analyzer for measuring the Zeta Potential of fibers. Furthermore, emtec Electronic has developed a new online measuring device, FPO Fiber Zeta Potential Analyzer Online, which measures the Zeta Potential of fibers directly in the production process and delivers immediately reliable and necessary information concerning the dosing of chemicals to the pulp.
More information is available online.
