IBS flowMASTER

The IBS flowMASTER is a reliable real-time measuring system, that enables the evaluation of the dewatering efficiency to improve the runnability of the PM, and optimise vacuum performance and cost.  Made of stainless steel, this flow measuring device can be installed at all positions in the wire and felt section of the PM, with or without a vacuum. The additional information it gives can help maximise felt lifetime and can be used as part of a fully automated control loop to save energy. 

In cases where a process is vacuum limited, the information that a flowmaster can bring can be used to increase dryness in combination, for example, with a more open vacuum box cover to either save energy or increase speed.

In one rebuild example on a Tissue Machine, IBS installed a new more open cover, the IBS dMASTER, to reduce felt wear, improve dewatering performance and increase speed. It was not possible to optimise the required vacuum for optimal dewatering without knowing the water amount removed at each box. It was also not possible to optimise for each grade without knowing the flow rates. However, using a combination of the new IBS cover and information from the flowmaster the customer added 2.5% of dryness after the press roll giving a 12% increase in speed. This shows what can be done when the right information is available.
