The Paper Machine Clothing of each individual position must run at precisely set speeds. But are they really doing that?
The RealSpeed versions
The RealSpeed hand grip with wheel can be connected to the battery operated control unit in two ways; by cable (RealSpeed basic) or through a wireless connection (RealSpeed wireless).
Why measure if you can comfortably check the speeds in the control room?
The speeds shown in the Drive Control System (DCS) are calculated values, depending on correct input of the roll diameters and data about the fabric caliper.
To eliminate human DCS input errors or faulty assumptions when troubleshooting the machine, it is best to measure where it matters: on the surface of the rolls and fabrics!
An accurate measurement in two minutes!
Assembly only takes a minute and the RealSpeed can be used on almost any position; wet or dry, damp or clear, stable or vibrating.
In extensive comparative trials with laser Doppler systems, the RealSpeed has proven to be equally accurate when measuring paper machine clothing or rolls.
Some indications for speed differences
- orange peel effect of the sheet
- excessive fabric wear
- many breaks at transfer points
Three good reasons to measure the real speed
- Unexpected speed differences cause quality and runnability problems
- Identify slipping rolls that cause extreme clothing wear
- Done in minutes; it is easy, quick and reliable
