Basis weight control is critical to the operation of paper machines.

The basis weight control valve must be able to respond to small input changes of <1%. In the vast majority of applications, this requirement is met with either a pulsed input gear motor or a stepper motor actuator with a complex electronic controls interface.

The problem is the high-cost of maintenance for these specialized actuators. Many mills keep dedicated onsite spares due to long lead times for spare parts. Also, there is often a lack of in-house expertise to troubleshoot and repair these actuators, which can result in machine downtime.

Choose a trusted control valve solution.

The Fisher™ Vee-Ball™, Fisher 2052 Diaphragm Rotary Actuator, and Fisher FIELDVUE™ DVC6200 Digital Valve Controller have the performance capability required for basis weight control with proven results.

The solution utilizes standard Fisher products used on many other applications in a paper mill, resulting in reduced maintenance costs while eliminating the need for dedicated spare parts. Production downtime is reduced as in-house knowledge and expertise to troubleshoot and repair is readily available.
