Generates an index of linting propensity on each side of a sheet of paper. It is quick and simple and therefore allows for measurements to be effected on paper samples taken directly on the reel. The measuring rate is such that paper from every reel can be tested without requiring lengthy and arduous labor.

In brief, the test consists in acquiring loosely bonded particles at the surface of a sample of paper in accordance with a standard method and then generating the linting propensity index with the help of a camera and an image analysis software. The method is simple and requires little training.

Features

  • Works for newsprint, directory, coated grades, uncoated freesheet, various value-added and supercalendered grades, and some board grades
  • Calculates particles size distribution
  • Allows for CD profiles
  • Fast and easy to operate
  • No inks, oils or solvents
  • Results at the touch of a button
  • Fits on lab bench (~ 1 meter²)

You can now test your process parameters in real time when studying lint causes
