Compare Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer and conventional systems
The Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer is an online measurement system. It detects and classifies dirt and shives according to ISO and TAPPI standards providing both dirt count per square meter and dirt area per square meter (ppm).
Dirt that does not qualify a dirt according to the standard is rejected from the calculation. Beyond standards, some objects like metal wires, oil and special particles relating to different raw materials are detected and classified based on their shape.
The Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer is measuring in transmission with strobe LED lights with the camera resolution of 0.1 x 0.1 mm to meet TAPPI/ISO standards. You can choose between full CD/MD coverage or one camera per bale or just few measurement points.
The Procemex® Dirt Count Analyzer detects dirt in real time and stores every defect individually into the system database. The system keeps operators up to date with the amount of defect per set, per bale and per time. The amount of dirt in each bale is indicated both in real time values and with color coding. Operators can monitor real time dirt count trends indicating process changes and enable fast corrective reaction.
The dirt count values are transferred to the customer quality data management and bale tracking systems providing an easy access to any of the historical information.
The customer had an existing system. The 'black box' type of a system provided a dirt count number from one measurement spot.
Their current system was getting old, and there were issues with support and spare part availability. They wanted a modern online Dirt Count Analyzer with a classification function that complies with the ISO-5350-2 specification.
