P1

P1|Microwave consistency meter in the forming section.

Planar microwave sensor allows to measure relative moisture in the felts used in press section.
High speed rate (1024 samples/sec) and resolution down to 1gsm, allow accurate measurements over a range from 0 to 3.000 gsmH2O and high accuracy in monitoring the state of the felt.

Microwave consistency meter

Quality – Efficiency - Runnability

The P1 sensor has been optimised for use in the pulp & paper production process.
A number of factors affect drainage characteristics and knowing the consistency and the water content at several sections of the forming sheet can be a key factor in achieving the best trade off.
The AMS P1 sensor measures the water level at every point in the forming section, thanks to its exceptionally large range of measurement and its small dimensions.

Microwave consistency meter

Unique patented technology

The P1 uses a unique patented technology: the Planar Active Microwave Sensor.
This technology, based on a planar microwave resonator, allows the instrument to measure up to 48000 g/m2. Measurements are not affected by the type of fibre, the colour of the paper or vibrations.
The proprietary algorithm makes P1 independent from temperature, conductivity and oscillations in the sheet. In addition, by using the specific software on the AMS HUB, and switching the sensor to “FFT” mode, the sample rate is increased to 1024 sample/s and relevant information can be extracted regarding the vibration and oscillation on the wire.

Mains features

  • Wide range of measurement from 0 to 48000 g/m2
  • Resolution of 1 g/m2
  • High repeatability and reliability
  • High rate of measurement up to 1024 samples/s in FFT mode
  • Easy installation (single cable connection)
  • Easy integration into complex AMS standard measuring systems.
  • Simple DCS/QCS interfacing with analogue output

Advanced data processing features with FFT analysis tools

The P1 can be used in every section under the forming  board, in every kind of forming board from those used in the Pulp mills to that used in the fast newspaper mills, from close the head box to the couch roll.
The sensor has a stainless steel AISI 316 body, that protects
it against chemical and mechanical stresses.

P1 uses a single industrial connector carrying all necessary signals and power supplies, directly connected to AMS HUB, with an UTP cable with length up to 100m.

Data analysis

The PAMS P1 sensor has been optimised for use in the pulp & paper production process. It is designed to measure the water content in the forming section, allowing real time control of consistency and other production parameters.

The sensor works in contact with the forming wire and produces digital data. The AMS P1 sensor needs to be connected to the AMS HUB by a digital data connection. It can be completely integratedinto any AMS measuring system. By using the HUB, analogue output can easily be connected to the DCS/QCS (using an analogue interface). In addition, if an internet connection is provided, the data generated can be analysed in real time by any authorised
remote user.
