ABB Introduces New Infrared, Fiber Weight Sensor

The ABB HPIR-FW sensor measures fiber weight, web moisture and web temperature simultaneously, with just one infrared instrument.

Oct. 10, 2012 - ABB recently launched its new High-Performance Infrared and Fiber Weight (HPIR-FW) sensor that provides precise, high resolution moisture and fiber weight measurement. The HPIR-FW sensor directly measures the most critical parameters of MD and CD control using a single sensor module, allowing tissue makers to precisely control two of their most expensive costs fiber and energy.

The ABB HPIR-FW sensor measures fiber weight, web moisture and web temperature simultaneously, with just one infrared instrument.

According to ABB, the sensor's simple and proven design delivers safe and reliable performance. Importantly, the HPIR-FW sensor measures without radiological isotopes and the many regulations associated with them.

"The HPIR-FW sensor helps tissue makers meet today's profitability and sustainability challenges because it gives them the ability to respond more quickly and flexibly to global customer demand, said Steven St. Jarre, Global Sales & Marketing Manager for ABB Quality Control Systems.
