Three Dimensions of Dewatering
Apr 16, 2014
Our Three Dimensions of Dewatering approach delivers different Mechanical, Operational, and Chemical (MOC) tools to address papermakers’ needs in these different machine zones:
- Forming – The early forming zone on the machine before the sheet is consolidated.
- Consolidation – The sheet is already consolidated but still can easily be disrupted and destroyed if the dewatering is too aggressive.
- Pressing – After the sheet leaves the couch where the goal is to deliver the maximum sustained press solids along with the best sheet profile possible.
