Paper Thickness Control in Manufacturing

Controlling paper thickness during the manufacturing of paper can be made simple with the Proportion-Air FCV and an ultrasonic sensor.

In this drawing, white water (white paper fiber and water mixture) is sprayed on a screen. An ultrasonic sensor is constantly meausring the thickness of the paper and relaying this information to the PLC or controller. The PLC then commands the FCV to flow more or flow less. The thickness of the paper is determined by the flow of the FCV.

Typically, 8 to 20+ individual flow controllers are arranged across a wide conveyor. The FCV is a 1″ electronically controlled needle valve that is perfect for controlling the flow of various liquids and gases to processes just like this.
