Voith and PTS set a new standard for measuring stickies
- New near-infrared measuring technology offers higher measuring accuracy and a wider range of applications compared to conventional measuring methods
- Reliable detection of stickies and non-tacky contaminants
- Voith, PTS Heidenau and PROPAKMA publish technical rule for sticky measurements as DIN SPEC 6745
In collaboration with Voith Paper Papiertechnische Stiftung (PTS) is introducing a new measuring method to detect unwanted tacky contaminants known as stickies. The measuring method, which uses a near-infrared (NIR) camera, allows the reliable detection of contaminants along the papermaking process and offers higher measuring accuracy and a wider range of applications compared to conventional methods. The associated technical rule was recently published as DIN SPEC 6745.
