Viscosity can help ascertain the quality of the paper and pulp. Different types of wood or plant fibers result in pulps with different viscosities, and these can greatly impact the properties of the final paper. A high viscosity can indicate longer or more intact fibers, which generally produce stronger paper. The viscosity of the pulp can also influence the uniformity of the paper sheet. A slurry that’s not viscous enough might not suspend the fibers properly, leading to a lack of uniformity in fiber distribution throughout the paper.
Assessing the viscosity of the pulp used in the paper making process can reveal a lot about the characteristics of the final paper product, the efficiency of the production process, and potential issues that could arise during manufacturing.
Our Viscol 10C model which is especially designed for full automatic viscosity measurements of paper/pulp samples, become one of the members of Presidency of Manuscripts Department Laboratory. Viscol-10C will be serving for quality and genuinity controls according to TAPPI 230 standard without any user intervention.
