QualiFlex QRun:  Two Case Studies, Paper360º September/October 2020

The press section’s main function is the mechanical dewatering of the paper web. The press configuration also determines surface properties such as smoothness and two-sidedness. The goal in the press section is to achieve the greatest possible dewater-ing, since mechanical pressing is much more economical than drying by heat.

n addition, higher dry content contributes to higher web strength; this reduces the risk of web breaks during transfer to the dryer section and during the entire operation. The paper web enters the press section with a dry content of 15-22 percent and leaves the section with a dry content of 40-55 percent.

TAPPI conference proceedings and presentations, technical papers, and publication articles provide technical and management data and solutions on topics covering the Pulp, Paper, Tissue, Corrugated Packaging, Flexible Packaging, Nanotechnology and Converting Industries.

Simply select the quantity, add to your cart and your conference paper, presentation or article will be available for immediate download.
