Break the chemistry cycle by holding entrained air at target
When entrained air numbers fluctuate, the instinct is to chase it back with defoamer. But overfeeding can impact product integrity, which means you have to add another chemical to improve strength. When you partner with Buckman, you will break the chemistry cycle by holding entrained air at your defined target. With Ackumen™ ECHOWISE® Pro’s closed-loop control capability, you will automatically and precisely dose defoamer based on real-time entrained air data—freeing your operators from manual adjustments and other experiments that often introduce more variability downstream. And when you flatten air, you remove it as a variable, which means your operators can better identify the root cause of issues like strength problems or defects in the sheet. As a result, you’re able to make the papermaking process simpler, more consistent, and more predictable, while preventing unnecessary chemical usage and resultant impacts to the environment and your bottom line.
