KPM KC7 Microwave Consistency Transmitter

True-phase method measurement
The KPM KC7 transmitter uses well-tested microwave truephase technology to measure the total consistency of mixed pulps. With a microwave signal utilizing phase vector modulation that contains a microwave-wide band sweep, KC7 is able to provide the highest measurement accuracy on the market today. The antennas have been designed to avoid microwave reflections in pipe and generate a self cleaning effect.
Accurate, total consistency measurement
KPM KC7 is unaffected by variations in pulp species, fiber length, freeness and in process conditions, unlike optical and shear force technologies. KPM KC7 measures fibers and fillers for total consistency, making it ideal to measure mixed pulps and has single point calibration.
Remote display unit
Remote electronics offers large display for easy operation and set-up. Intuitive, menu-driven interface features simple set-up, calibration and troubleshooting functions.
Two versions for wide range of installation options
Flow-through version is available in sizes 50-300mm (2-12″). Insertion style KC7 fits pipe size 250mm (10”) and larger.
No maintenance
KPM KC7 needs no preventive maintenance; it has no wearing parts at all. The flow-through models do not have measurement parts inside the pipe to be hit by foreign particles. Depend on KPM KC7 for a reliable and maintenance-free product.
