With the latest technology, new user interface, and patented internal detection principle, the transmitter continues to offer reliable, accurate, and cost-efficient consistency measurement for all applications

“Valmet Blade Consistency has been a standard consistency measurement in the market for decades. We want to continue the good performance and reliability of the previous generations with improved technology and user experience,” said Bengt Johansson, product manager, measurement products, automation business line, Valmet. “By utilizing all the good features of the old transmitter, we developed a more reliable and easier-to-use device.”

Valmet Blade Consistency Measurement is an economic option with easy installation and low maintenance needs. With modular design and low lifetime costs, it reportedly offers reliable consistency measurements without moving parts or need for preventive maintenance. The new patented detection principle utilizing contactless technology ensures reliability also in the future. 

With shear force measurement technology and a large blade and process couplings portfolio, it is possible to measure fiber consistency ranging from 0.7 to 16 percent in all types of installations in the entire pulp process.

Commissioning, calibration, and operation have been enhanced with a new Valmet Link user interface, a flexible platform with secure remote connection possibilities.
