Basis Weight
Basis weight control is critical to the operation of pulp and paper machines.

Basis weight control is critical to the operation of pulp and paper machines.

The basis weight control valve must be able to respond to small input changes of <1%. In the vast majority of applications, this requirement is met with either a pulsed input gear motor or a stepper motor actuator. The problem is maintenance of these specialized actuators; high-cost, dedicated spares are required. Typically there is a lack of in-house expertise to service these actuators, resulting in production downtime and the need to troubleshoot basis weight valve issues.

Choose a trusted solution.

The Emerson Fisher™ Vee-Ball™, Fisher™ 2052 Diaphragm Rotary Actuator, and Fisher™ FIELDVUE™ DVC6200 Digital Valve Controller have the performance capability required for basis weight control with proven results. The solution utilizes standard Fisher products used on many applications in a pulp mill, resulting in reduced maintenance costs and an eliminated need for dedicated spare parts. Production downtime is reduced as in-house knowledge/expertise to troubleshoot and repair is readily available.
