Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Kadant Solutions, Auburn, Mass., USA, a division of Kadant Inc., has launched the CeraEdgeTM creping blade line for use in tissue production. With CeraEdge, the company uses a thermal spray technology to produce a unique ceramic-tipped blade that provides tissue producers with excellent creping performance in terms of operating life and tissue softness.

The CeraEdge L creping blade is designed for applications requiring extended blade life that maximizes productivity and optimizes asset utilization. For premium tissue producers seeking high tissue softness, the CeraEdge S creping blade is recommended and is suitable for relatively dirty furnish due to its insensitivity to particles and contaminants. The thermal stability of both products reduces blade buckling, twisting, and warping.

Jerry Vandoros, product manager at Kadant Solutions, noted that "the timing is perfect for launching the CeraEdge creping blade line. There are more metallized yankee surfaces being installed and some of the new manufacturing processes put high demands on creping blade performance. Kadant offers a range of coatings for its blades that address specific requirements of both high quality consumer grades and 100% recycle away-from-home grades. The new CeraEdge creping blades fit nicely in Kadant's product portfolio for tissue producers, which includes yankee doctor systems and holders, spray booms, suction pressure roll doctors, steam and condensate equipment, and technical service."
