SolarFlow roll cover from Voith achieves top lifetime
The suction roll was completely dismantled at the Voith Service Center in Ravensburg. This is a standardized procedure that ensures that the causes of signs of wear are discovered and can be rectified. “We perform a weak point analysis for each roll that we get for service. This means that we can save our customers future repairs,” says Alexander Reutlinger, Head of the Voith Service Center in Ravensburg.
The SolarFlow polyurethane roll cover allows a maximized void volume, which is maintained over a long installation period due to its unique material properties. This enables stable nip conditions, therefore fast machine speeds with a high dry content and at the same time low energy consumption.
