ERIC 950®

Quality and process control tool for paper deinking

Since its introduction in 1993 by Technidyne and FPInnovations (formerly Paprican), the ERIC 950® measurement was quickly adopted in most recycling mills and today it stands as a critical quality and process control tool for the deinking world. Based on work done by Paprican and brought to market by Technidyne this test offers unique insights and understanding to the deinking process and how effective your processes are at removing ink.

Measuring energy at 950nm (NIR) the ERIC 950® measurement can easily separate other contaminants from ink. Isolating the ink allows us to then quantify the effect the remaining ink is having on the appearance of the pulp. Getting this information back in to your hands, puts you in charge of determining what needs to be done to achieve the level of deinking required for your operations.

Often the need to understand the impact ink has on Brightness is the most critical parameter. As an option on the Color Touch X® ISO, the ERIC 950® is a fully functioning spectrophotometer that will also provide ISO Brightness, Color, Fluorescence, Opacity and many other testing capabilities. As part of the Color Touch family of spectrophotometers the ERIC 950® will meet and exceed your testing needs for your deinking operations.
