Toshiba's LQ300 Microwave Consistency Meter uses a new principle, microwave phase difference measurement, to determine the consistency of pulp stock flowing through pipes. This exploits the way consistency affects the propagation of microwaves when they pass through the stock line. This allows the reliable measurement of the consistency by monitoring the difference in microwave phase between the original wave and one passed through the measured pulp stock. Unlike the method that depends on monitoring the attenuation of a transmitted wave, measuring consistency by observing a wave's phase difference is unaffected by flow velocity and contamination and is less affected by air bubbles and conductivity.


  • Measures both fillers and fibers
  • Responds linearly to Total Consistency
  • No moving parts
  • Extremely reliable
  • Single point calibration
  • HART protocol included
  • Measures accurately in turbulent flow
  • Can be placed in pitch applications
  • Averages over pipe cross sectional area
  • Independent of fiber properties - varying pulp grade, wood type, fiber length, freeness, brightness, color, shives, and stock viscosity do not affect the accuracy of the measurement
  • Unaffected by flow rate changes
  • Unaffected by pipe vibration


  • all consistency measurement and control applications in paper making process
  • as a sludge density meter for use in water treatment system in the mills
