JWF are exclusive UK partners for KPM Consistency Measurement Products from ABB.
ABB's innovative KPM products enable pulp and paper mills to successfully manage and control consistency as well as secure reliable break detection of the paper machine.
The KPM product portfolio from ABB includes consistency transmitters, samples and sheet break detectors. These products can help achieve considerable savings on fibre, energy and chemical costs, while improving production efficiency and paper quality. These products are easy to use, offering several features for a minimum of maintenance and low cost of ownership. The products will help our customers achieve considerable savings on fibre, energy and chemical costs, while improving production efficiency and paper quality.
KPM consistency transmitters offer an application to manage and control consistency in the best way possible. From the comprehensive product range (rotary, blade, microwave and optical) the best solution for each application can be selected without compromise. All KPM consistency transmitters are unique innovative products, covered by several patents.
Measures total consistency of mixed pulps, different quality pulps, and pulps with fillers.
With the reliable and well tested microwave true-phase measurement technology it has proven excellent measurement accuracy. Additionally the transmitter’s straightforward design, with no moving parts, guarantees high uptime and a minimum of maintenance.
With its wide range sensor, KC5 Rotating Consistency Transmitter is applicable to all consistencies between 1.5–16% with the patented built-in gate valve assembly, the transmitter can be installed and removed while the process is running and with the revolutionary direct-drive servo motor KC5 requires no maintenance, since there is no belt to change.
KC3 Blade Consistency Transmitter, is a reliable and maintenance free transmitter. Its patented, shock resistant seal-less transfer mechanism with unbreakable diaphragm makes it the only transmitter in the market with no moving parts or o-rings seals in the transfer mechanism, making it impossible for process liquid to leak inside sensor.
KPM offers full range of optical consistency transmitters for in-line and by-pass installations. Optical consistency transmitters are the best choice for range 0–2 %Cs.
KPM Pulp Samplers provide representative sampling from the process line safely and diminishes errors by the operator. The sampler breaks through the water layer inside the pipe, eliminating dewatering from the sampling process.
This includes the KPM KS2, which covers low consistency screened applications. The KPM KS4 and KPM KS6 samplers handle unscreened extractions with a cutting piston.
KB2 is designed to monitor sheet breaks in harsh environments, it is proven with hundreds of installations around the world.
KB2 Fibre-Optic Sheet Break Detector is the new generation sheet break detector that with the latest RGB technology enables 50 % more light with effective power LED.
