VALMET integrates PaperBaleSensor (PBS) at Smurfit Kappa in Hoya and Birmingham
At the end of 2018, PTS supported Valmet Saragossa in commissioning waste paper bale testers at Smurfit Kappa's Birmingham and Hoya sites. With the PaperBaleSensor (PBS), PTS supplies the measurement core component for the inspection system.
The so-called core version is used in Valmet's bale testers. This means that the drill core from the recovered paper bale produced with a core drill is automatically brought to the PBS installed in the system and pushed past the measuring window.
