Honeywell Extends Experion MX Range with Infrared Weight and Moisture Sensor


Enhanced Quality Control System Reduces Costs, Simplifies Operations for Tissue Producers

VIENNA, Austria - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced it has expanded its Experion® MX Quality Control System (QCS) portfolio with the addition of Transmission Infrared (TRIR) Fiber Weight and Moisture Measurements. The new sensor will help customers in the tissue production industry reduce costs and simplify overall operations by providing a more robust measurement of both dry weight and moisture from a single sensor.

The global tissue industry remains buoyant, with growth of 4 percent in 2011 and an annual capacity of 34.6 million tons. Tissue producers are increasingly investing in advanced quality control systems to improve product quality while reducing capital and maintenance costs. Honeywell's new TRIR Fiber Weight and Moisture Measurement halves the number of sensors needed to produce tissue - reducing complexity and cost - whilst making measurements less sensitive to environmental factors, such as temperature and head alignment. This improvement creates a more reliable measurement of the key product quality parameters. The sensor can also be retrofitted to replace older systems containing nuclear source betagauges, allowing customers to avoid the periodic source replacement costs associated with this legacy technology.

"Our customers are constantly looking to improve the quality and efficiency of the tissue making process and the new HPS sensor provides the means to do just that," said Brad Garnett, global leader of Honeywell Process Solutions' paper business. "Honeywell has been providing single-sided infrared systems to tissue manufacturers for many years and we are pleased to bring this new technology to the wider tissue industry in the form of TRIR."

Honeywell's Experion® MX, launched in 2009, allows users to improve production efficiency and quality. Integrated with Honeywell's Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), the solution offers fast scanning and processing speeds, with superior measurement technology and the industry's most comprehensive suite of quality control applications. It is simple to use, provides superior visibility into the papermaking process, and is easy and cost effective to maintain and service. Experion MX also has the fastest scanner available in the industry today at 1,200 mm/s.
