Ultrasonic measurements and modelling of attenuation and phase velocity in pulp suspensions

Abstract [en]

In the manufacturing process of paper the mass fraction and material properties of the fibres in the pulp suspension are important for the quality of the finished product. This study presents two different methods of pulp characterisation. The first is based on phase velocity, which we use to investigate the composition of the pulp. Here a method is presented where the optimal number of circular shifts within the sampling window of the signal is determined which gives, in a weakly dispersive medium, a continuous phase spectrum and minimizes the likelihood of discontinuities within the bandwidth. Hence, the ambiguity in phase unwrapping is avoided. The results from phase velocity measurements show that the phase velocity weakly increases with increasing amount of fines in the suspension. The dispersion is caused by the fibres and it correlates with fibre mass fraction. The second method is based on attenuation and is used to characterise the wood fibres. The results of the attenuation experiments show that it is possible to inversely calculate wood fibre properties by fitting the model to the experimental data, if the fibre diameter distribution is known. However, the accuracy of these calculation is difficult to determined and more work in this area is required.
