Press Solids in Real Time – Cristini’s Contactless SmartScan


The continuous measurement of sheet moisture in the press section is important to optimize press nip efficiency, machine clothing performance, and to reduce/control loop vacuum.

A 1% increase of dry content in the press section gives a 4% reduction in steam consumption in the dryer section, therefore an accurate sheet moisture measurement is very important to lower the energy consumption.

SmartScan™ is the first on-line contactless, single side, microwave meter. The highly accurate meter measures sheet consistency/moisture on pulp and paper machines, is non radioactive, and easy to install .

The system is based on unique microwave technology & algorithms, that allow precise consistency measurements of paper moisture.
