RET-5501 / RET-5503: Retention online

High accuracy of ash and total consistency

BTG’s RET-5503 PeakAsh is the perfect solution for measuring ash and total consistency of pulp suspensions in the range of 0.01-2%. Due to its LED and laser technology, it can easily be calibrated to secure stable and accurate ash consistency based on laboratory ash determination. Ash and total consistency values are independent of variation in pulp brightness or color.

The PeakAsh sensor is mounted in a special bypass arrangement and provides real time results. The unit has a unique low-maintenance probe which is fed by a pump solution ideally suited for these applications. All modules built on a frame allow for plug & play features with shortest start-up times. High installation flexibility is achieved through a variety of customized options plus the unit’s independency of process pressure and process layout.
