Lab Charge Analyzer 5.1

Introducing the New LCA5 for Pulp and Paper

The Chemtrac Lab Charge Analyzer model LCA5.1, is the latest generation charge analyzer (particle charge detector) designed for a range of industrial uses including paper, tissue, and board applications. The LCA5.1 measures the charge of dissolved and colloidal substances in wet end samples using polyelectrolyte titrations, which can be expressed in either microequivalents per liter (µeq/L) or parts per million (ppm). By optimizing wet end chemistry, the LCA5.1 helps improve performance and quality, allowing you to monitor and stabilize variations in charge for better process runnability and product quality.

Our standard model allows for manual titrations, and we also offer automatic-titration models with either one or two-pump configurations. Backed with four decades of charge analysis expertise and world-class customer support, the LCA5.1 is the ultimate solution for your charge analysis needs. Let the LCA5.1 help you achieve your papermaking goals with accurate and reliable charge measurements.  And it is very reasonably priced when compared to PCD models from other manufacturers.
