Voith Introduces TerraDry Roll Coatings for Dryer Cylinders in Paper Machines

Published on 2012-10-01. Author : SpecialChem

In order to reduce contamination and ensure the best wear and corrosion resistance, Voith has introduced roll coatings from the TerraDry product line onto the market. For the first time, all of the newly developed coatings for dryer cylinders, guide rolls and vac-rolls in the dryer section can be applied directly in the paper machine.

Dismantling of dryer cylinders and the associated machine shutdowns lead to unplanned costs and production stoppages. Since TerraDry allows direct coating, dismantling is no longer necessary. This coating process can also be done worldwide within Voith service centers according to customer preference.

Corrosion of rolls and cylinders can affect the safe running of the paper machine. Contamination on the rolls is often passed to the dryer fabric limiting its ability to dry the sheet. TerraDry makes the rolls more resistant and positively influences the service life and running time of the clothing. These characteristics were demonstrated both in test runs as well as in the customer's application.
