Valmet Paper Lab offering enhanced for linerboard applications

Valmet enhances the offering of Valmet Paper Lab, an automated paper testing laboratory, for linerboard applications. In recent years, a large share of the Valmet Paper Lab deliveries has already been for linerboard applications. With a new S-Test module, Valmet Paper Lab offers a complete laboratory package for linerboard producers.

The new S-Test module offers even more benefits by saving operators’ time, materials, and providing real-time valuable quality information. In typical linerboard measurements, such as tensile strength, basis weight, short span compression (SCT), burst, caliper, surface properties, and porosity, Valmet Paper Lab has become a cornerstone of the laboratory automation,” says Bogdan Pavlovic, business manager, Board, and Paper Analyzers, Automation business line, Valmet.

Faster and easier classification with S-Test

Compared to the time-consuming and user-dependent standard manual laboratory procedure known as Concora Medium Test (CMT), the S-Test is said to offer a fast and easy method for estimating the strength classification of containerboard medium fluting. There is no need to corrugate or tape the test pieces, which makes the strength classification fast and easy, and provides significant savings in time and materials. The S-Test has been standardized by German Institute for Standardization and confirmed by The Cepi Container Board, a European industry association of producers of corrugated case materials.

Valmet Paper Lab is a modular and scalable automated paper testing system for board and paper grades. With the widest selection of industry-standard tests on the market, reporting can detail over 400 properties. The testing system is based on several decades of automated paper testing experience with over 300 units delivered to board and paper mills around the world.

Valmet Paper Lab provides an easy-to-learn and intuitive tool for paper and board property testing, which, together with Valmet’s Industrial Internet remote support, can take the automated laboratory’s performance to a new level by utilizing real-time quality results to steer the production efficiency.
