NipcoFlex T Shoe Press Improves Yankee Operation

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

With the NipcoFlex T shoe press, up to 5% higher dryness can be achieved compared with a configuration of suction roll pressed against the yankee or earlier shoe press generations. All of this is possible without compromising paper quality. In addition, a production increase or energy savings up to 20% are feasible due to higher after-press dryness. The high flexibility of the press shoe allows tracing the yankee deflections more precisely. This results in a more uniform cross directional dryness profile and sheet adhesion to the yankee surface. Switching between bulk and dryness mode and vice versa is even possible during production, increasing the machine’s efficiency.

NipcoFlex T shoe press has a much simpler construction compared with the first shoe press generation. The two rubber bellows pressing device instead of several pistons along the machine width results in fewer controls required and thus in simpler operation.

Grades use up to 50% less fiber as well as less energy and fewer chemicals.
