Hot Melt Adhesive Thickness Measurement with the MCT360 Hot Melt Thickness Gauge for Paper, Film, and Foil

Hot Melt Thickness Measurement with the MCT360 Gauge for Paper, Film, and Foil

Paraffin Wax is largely accepted as the first hot melt coating application. Polymer and copolymer resins brought a host of formulations for improved performance properties that continue to expand the horizons of Hot Melt applications.

Roll Coaters, Die Coaters, extruders, and doctor blade configurations are among the methods of applying hot melt adhesive. Roll coaters offer more flexibility than die application methods as they change over more quickly and allow for stripe coating. Die Coaters offer more precision across the web, especially in the 15 to 20 GSM. Hot melt applications of 100 GSM are very common and the range can go from 0-400 GSM.

Paper Moisture Control with MCT360 Moisture Sensor

Paper Industry ? Controlling Edge Curl

Moisture, Temperature, or Both for Control?

Key Words: Warp, flatness, moisture control, temperature, curl

Edge Curl and Lay Flat Index in the paper industry is a constant challenge, especially when temperature and humidity vary in the manufacturing environment. Similarly, warp is a challenge in the corrugating industry.

Cross Direction (CD) warp is when the top and bottom liner board moistures are not matched and it is the largest contributor to board quality. If the top and bottom liner board moisture levels are unequal after bonding, the variance in shrink rate will cause warp. Machine Direction (MD) warp can be caused by moisture variations between the top and bottom liners and tension control.

Guardian Moisture Web Profile System

Optimizes Water Based Mold Inhibitor and
Burn Retardants In Paper Converting Industry

Key words: moisture transmitter, liquid application system, mold inhibitor, water based applicator, LAS, moisture meter, moisture
sensor, converting control, moisture control, MCT360, Guardian web profile system, moisture gauge, nir transmitter, coat weight, aqueous coatings, impregnation coatings

Converting companies vying for the high quality performance paper market focus on flat and level sheets. Water based fillers and strengtheners are typically clay or chalk, and are used to coat paper for high quality printing. They may be bound to the paper by organic starches or synthetics. This is an ideal application for the GUARDIAN Web Profile System for water based coat weight
measurement.

Liquid Applications Systems saturate the web with water based solutions through an applicator roll system. These systems typically
employ an applicator roll and a metering roll, and sometimes a third roll to saturate the entire sheet. The MCT360 moisture sensor outputs a 4-20mA analog signal that is used to control roll speed for proper set point. The digital output is sent to a separate PC for product roll archiving.

Food Safety Modernization Act

MCT330SF NIR Moisture Transmitter for Moisture, Oil, Fat, and Flavorings

Key words: food safety, MCT330SF, stainless steel enclosure, reduce bacteria, moisture, oil, fat, flavorings, food safety modernization act

 

?On January 4, 2011, President Obama signed into law the most sweeping reform of our food safety laws in more than 70 years. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) aims to ensure the US food supply is safe by shifting the focus from response to prevention.? SnaxPo 2012.

?For example, processors of all types of food will now be required to evaluate the hazards in their operations, implement and monitor effective measures to prevent contamination, and have a plan in place to take any corrective actions that are necessary. Also, FDA will have much more effective enforcement tools for ensuring those plans are adequate and properly implemented, including mandatory recall authority when needed to swiftly remove contaminated food from the market.

This law represents a sea change for food safety in America, bringing a new focus on prevention, and I expect that in the coming years it will have a dramatic and positive effect on the safety of the food supply. ?
Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D. is the Commissioner of Food and Drugs

The MCT330SF measures moisture, oil, fat, and flavorings on-line. It?s accurate, rugged, and reliable. The MCT330 is also housed in a unique stainless steel design with food grade optical window for wash down environments and high temperatures. The housing minimizes any areas for bacterial growth and is sealed for wash downs that will increase as manufacturer?s move from ?response to prevention?.

If the top and bottom liner board moisture levels are unequal after bonding, the variance in shrink rate will cause warp. Machine Direction (MD) warp can be caused by moisture variations between the top and bottom liners and tension control.

Warp Control and Flatness can most reliably be achieved with the incorporation of moisture transmitters into the control scheme.
