  • Tailored to the requirements of small and medium-sized paper machines
  • High dewatering performance through customized surface design
  • Improved material characteristics for reduced wear

MatchPress and MatchFlow offer markedly improved material characteristics. These enable surface designs that increase dewatering capacity in the press section. Furthermore the material characteristics are key for the high wear resistance of the covers. Constant high grinding intervals can thus be achieved for the operator.

Unique groove dimensions and blind-drilled design in the covers guarantee high dewatering of the paper web. This effect is reinforced thanks to high open area of the new roll covers MatchPress and MatchFlow. This leads to higher production volumes or lower energy consumption. Initial runs in actual operating scenarios demonstrate these characteristics impressively: For example, a Voith customer was able to increase its annual production with MatchPress by 10,000 metric tons, or by nearly 4%.

The Koehler Kehl paper mill has awarded Voith the contract for the rebuild of the PM1. The aim of the rebuild is to improve the profile quality of the specialty papers produced and also increase the energy efficiency of the production line. The modifications will also allow production to be stepped up on the PM1 in the future.

voith logo 2016The PM1 has been producing carbonless paper and thermal paper since 1988. The scope of the upgrade includes the installation of a MasterJet Pro F/B headbox and modification conversion of the approach flow system.

The MasterJet Pro F/B will be fitted with ModuleJet dilution water technology to achieve optimum basis weight profiles. It is also equipped with lamella technology for optimum jet quality and an EdgeModule as an effective tool for fast optimization of fiber orientation in the event of grade changes or large differences in grammages.

The proven OnQ Profilmatic CD profile controller, which is already operating on the PM1’s DynaCoat coater, is used to achieve better basis weight profiles and minimal settling times in the case of grade changes.

On the MasterJet Pro F/B, energy is saved for example due to the absence of the return pipe on the cross-flow header of the HC line. This reduces the volume flow to the headbox, so that less pump energy is required.

The rebuild in the approach flow system comprises the supply of an IntegraGuard screen for both main and dilution water line. The IntegraGuard screen is setting benchmarks for minimal pressure pulsations with maximum screening efficiency. This is primarily the result of the proven combination of C-bar screen basket and Multifoil rotor. The conical, eccentric housing ensures that there are no deposits or strings.

Additional energy is saved thanks to the optimized flow concept in IntegraGuard with minimal pressure losses and the switch to a two-stage screening process in the modified approach flow system. Moreover, pulsation measurements in the approach flow system conducted by Voith have shown that in combination with the low-pulsation IntegraGuard screen, there is no need for a pulsation damper in front of the headbox.

The investment in the rebuild of the PM1 therefore helps ensure that the production facility in Kehl for carbonless paper and thermal paper continues to be one of the most modern and economic paper machines of its kind.

Voith has enhanced its CleanWeave product range with the new Magma and MagmaHigh dryer fabrics. Magma dryer fabrics are made from hydrolysis-resistant PPS which ensures performance in the hottest dryer positions.

  • Heat-resistant material for high-temperature ranges
  • Clean machine run due to proven weave pattern
  • Predictable servicing schedule for cost-efficient operation

2016 04 22 121029

Extreme temperatures in some paper machines put dryer fabrics under severe stress and call for special material properties. Hydrolysis-resistant PPS reduces the stress on the fabric, allows service intervals to be properly planned and thus prevents unscheduled machine downtimes. Moreover, both Magma and MagmaHigh use the weave pattern that has already proven effective in the CleanWeave product range. The weave structure features industry low internal void volume, which significantly reduces dirt within the fabric. Due to its relatively low number of yarn crossover points, this compact weave pattern makes surface cleaning easier and ensures constant air permeability. This guarantees that the fabric maintains its air permeability for optimum drying and web running properties over its entire service life.

2016 04 22 121046

The superior reliability of Magma and MagmaHigh dryer fabrics makes planning easier and ultimately leads to more efficient and economic paper machine operation. As well as the dryer fabrics, Voith offers excellent service support and associated consultancy services.

Voith’s new MultiSeal Plus sealing technology improves processes in the dryer section of paper machines. Thanks to a shorter high-vacuum zone, the fabric deflection is significantly reduced and fabric wear is decreased. In addition, the adjustable SkySeal Plus sealing strips consistently optimize fabric runs and extend maintenance intervals. The entire sealing technology upgrades the web stabilization system ProRelease+ and results in better performance and an increase in machine speed.

  • Reduced fabric wear thanks to minimized deflection
  • Faster production speeds through an optimized vacuum zone
  • Greater durability of sealing strips and easier servicing

MulitSealPlus

The MultiSeal Plus is the carrier system for the SkySeal sealing strips. A key innovation is the horizontal adjustability of the new strips, which can be re-adjusted by up to 12 millimeter depending on the amount of wear. As a result, the correct distance between fabric and sealing system is guaranteed at all times. The SkySeal is available in two models with different hardness levels, which makes it easier to accommodate the characteristics and requirements of the respective paper machine. As a result the sealing strips suffer less abrasion.

ProReleasePlus

The MultiSeal Plus carrier systems can be adjusted to provide an optimum seal of the release zones in the ProRelease+ sealing systems. Thanks to the new technology, the high-vacuum zone can be shortened overall. This results in an increase in runnability and reduced energy costs. The entire upgrade for ProRelease+ should be suitable for all fast-running paper machines.
