Kemira: Launching KemFlite to eliminate deposits

Kemira is introducing KemFlite, a new concept to reduce paper and board machine problems that are caused by deposits due to the agglomeration of hydrophobic particles.

KemFlite is designed to manage the hydrophobic substances, particularly their size, before they form deposits. The concept combines Kemira’s deep papermaking process know-how, with its broad deposit control product portfolio and powerful new analysis and monitoring tools.

These tools include Kemira Flyto, a unique laboratory analysis to measure the particle size, quantity and hydrophobicity in samples taken from key points in the process, and KemiraAutoFlite, a new on-line device that continuously provides similar information.
