Kappa AssayPlus

The Kappa AssayPlus™ is the automated solution for Kappa number determination when measuring lignin content in pulp and paper processes. The Kappa methodology utilized was developed in partnership with PAPRICAN (Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada), where the protocol and system have been rigorously tested (see “Kappa Number Testing with Better Repeatability and Lower Cost”, 2004 PAPTAC Annual Meeting Proceedings, C-111. To request information from the author, please contact literature@mantech-inc.com.)

The Kappa AssayPlus™ system will fully automate the analysis of up to 17 samples on its robust XYZ autosampler. MANTECH understands that the pulping, oxygen delignification, and extraction processes require constant and reliable Kappa Number Tests in order to maintain good process control. Now, with the successful automation of the Kappa methodology, pulp labs can free up operator/technician time, reduce chemical costs, calibrate on-line automated Kappa number analyzers and improve analytical confidence.
