“Voith launches high-performance press fabric with faster saturation”

The special yarn structure results in better pressure distribution over the entire width of the fabric, enabling Velocity to absorb water faster and reach a higher saturation more quickly. As a result, the desired hydraulic nip pressure is achieved in an efficient manner, which in turn guarantees optimum dewatering and superb paper quality.

For even better results, Velocity can also be supplied with a Vector module, a three-dimensional non-woven component that increases the void volume of the fabric while retaining its compressibility. Moreover, Velocity has smaller pores than conventional press fabrics, generating a higher flow velocity in the fabric and thus preventing dirt from depositing on its surface. This self-cleaning function has a positive effect on paper quality.

Velocity can be used for the manufacture of graphic paper and tissue as well as a range of applications for producing board and packaging papers. Voith offers the press fabric in three variants. Thanks to its modular concept it can be customized to the specific requirements of each application.
