Consistency importance

The aim of consistency control is to reduce variations

Accurately measuring consistency impact: Profitability, End product quality, Equipment performance

Accurate consistency control saves money:

  • Through tighter consistency control
  • Improved basis weight
  • Reduced raw material costs
  • Chemical savings
  • Reduction of total cost of ownership
  • Through better pulper control

Consistency solutions

Correct consistency is foundation for the complete process

Consistency is the foundational parameter in all pulp and paper making processes to manage mass flow at target consistency and managing it correctly is critical. This applies to virgin pulp making, recycle fiber processing, mechanical pulping, stock preparation and paper machines.

Consistency is defined by the total content of dry solids in the pulp slurry, the slurry being made of water, fibers, fines and fillers. In other words, this is the weight of suspended solids per liter of liquid, and can be summarized as:

Total Consistency (%) = dry weight of sample / total weight of sample x 100
