Beloit Sheet Splitter
The Beloit Sheet Splitter is a precision instrument specifically
designed for the analysis of the transverse distribution of composition
and structure in paper and board.
wet sample is introduced into the nip of the stainless steel splitting
rolls. These rolls are cooled to a point below 32°F (0°C).
sample is split internally on the outgoing side of the nip (see
drawing). This may be described as a dynamic process in which
the interior plane of splitting occurs in a zone which
has not been frozen by the advancing ice fronts produced by the
split sections are doctored from the rolls. These split sections
can, in turn, be re-split until the section becomes too thin for
a uniform split.
are some examples of sections obtained with the Beloit Sheet Splitter.
Eight sections of a single sample of Kraft bag stock.
Six sections of a single sample of Coated Publication grade.
