Description

Brought to you by Technidyne, our specialist optical, surface, and physical property testing brand, this Profile Plus device is an industry-leading automated roughness of paper and porosity measurement tester. 

When you’re involved in high-quality printing, it’s essential to achieve a uniform ink coverage. This is only possible with a uniform paper surface. With the PROFILE/Plus® Roughness and Porosity you can test surface roughness and air permeance according to industry standard methods. 

The high-resolution flow meter of this Profile Plus device  improves measurement accuracy. This reduces process variability, enabling tighter control specifications. With proper roughness of paper testing you reduce customer complaints, minimize product returns and generate higher profits. 

The Technidyne PROFILE/Plus® Roughness and Porosity offers a complete roughness of paper or porosity analysis solution.  

Multiple measurement capability

The PROFILE/Plus® Roughness and Porosity supports all types of testing. You can choose a device with top-side roughness only, with bottom-side roughness only – or with top and bottom side roughness in one instrument! 

State-of-the art measuring heads

Our Profile Plus has a unique three head design. This provides top and bottom roughness of paper and air permeance measurements simultaneously. 

The PROFILE/Plus® Roughness and Porosity continuously monitors the zero flow rate to improve measurement accuracy for low porosity and/or very smooth grades. This provides a wide working range to test the quality of various types of paper and board. 

Our Profile Plus device will continually monitor a zero flow rate to optimize measurement accuracy. It reduces process variability and minimizes false reject decisions to improve PM efficiency and generate higher profits. 

Barometric pressure and temperature

The PROFILE/Plus® Roughness and Porosity can compensate for local variations in barometric pressure and temperature. If it’s caused by a change in mill elevation, or the local environment.  

This feature enhances the repeatability of tests. It stabilizes the measurement conditions. It helps to ensure that the correct results are achieved, reducing retests and lowering the overall cost of testing. 

Dry diaphragm air compressor

A critical factor of air-leak roughness and porosity testing is to ensure you have high quality air, free from contaminants. This Profile Plus device uses a ‘dry diaphragm air compressor’, which means that testing is always performed with lab conditioned measurement air. 

Testing with lab conditioned air is important. It reduces maintenance costs and encourages a high instrument uptime, while optimizing results. 

Lowering costs and saving money

The multiple measurement capabilities of the Profile Plus reduces labor costs and optimizes the ability to make process adjustments. This saves on raw materials and improves production. 

The selectable reporting units reduce the need for multiple instrument types, which saves money on roughness of paper testing equipment. The NIST traceable laminar flow improves the calibration procedure for enhanced measurement accuracy. This helps to reduce process variability and false rejects, lowering overall costs. 

PROFILE/Plus® automated test system

PROFILE/Plus® is a unique building block approach to automated testing. Each PROFILE/Plus® instrument is a standalone instrument that can be easily placed in line with other PROFILE/Plus® instruments to operate as an automated test system.  

Good-looking TAPPI testing

A consistent appearance is an important attribute for the makers of paper products. If a company wants to impress, they need their products to look good across every batch. 

Roughness of paper testing helps makers of paper products to guarantee consistently high standards. The PROFILE/Plus® Roughness and Porosity is part of our popular PROFILE/Plus® line of instruments. Use it to guarantee the most accurate roughness of paper measurements of your products or packaging.  

Quality roughness of paper testing – as standard! 

The Profile Plus roughness of paper tester meets or exceeds the requirements of many international standards, including:  

The Industrial Physics paper testing portfolio

In today’s world of strict standards and high demands, the data needed to assess whether a product meets customer specifications is essential. You can count on our industry-leading Profile Plus machines when the appearance of your paper products is important. 

We make a wide range of paper testing devices and accessories. For example, check out the Emtec AFG CAS Touch! Particle Charge. It gives accurate and easy determination of particle charge in the wet end of paper/board production and in any aqueous charge system 

Or perhaps the TEST/Plus Thickness – ISO is what you need? It delivers precise thickness measurements in accordance with ISO 534 and TAPPI T551.  

Blogs and advice from our brightest minds

We like to share the lessons we’ve learnt over many decades of making paper testing machines and devices.  

While you’re thinking about roughness of paper testing you may appreciate a couple of blogs we’ve written. There’s this one that compares two variables of common roughness/smoothness testers, or this article which explores how to test surface porosity with three techniques.
