Voith brings a new hybrid press felt onto the market
conventional press felts through its combination of a woven base structure
and a non-woven yarn structure. Its modular design gives paper
manufacturers the possibility of fulfilling their requirements for dewatering
performance and sheet quality at the same time.
This hybrid structure offers better visual paper characteristics and accelerated start-up times. The cross profile of the paper web is also improved. Kinetic has almost no tendency to markings, compacting or contamination and thus increases the entire operative performance. Quicker start-up times, an extended service life and improved surface characteristics of the paper make Kinetic clearly more economical and thus more efficient than conventional woven or non-woven press felts.
