Thanks to HydroSeal the lubricating water is distributed continuously over the entire width of the sealing strip and thus allows its surface to continuously be covered with a homogeneous film of lubricating water. The efficient feed substantially reduces the amount of lubricating water required. Moreover, this new design prevents remoistening of the paper web and also improves the CD moisture profile.
Trials carried out in the field on our customers' machines demonstrated that by using HydroSeal lubricating water consumption could be reduced by up to 87%. Specific energy consumption was cut by 9%. This means that even on just one suction roll HydroSeal can achieve savings of 100,000 euros per year or more, offering a distinct economic benefit as well as an ecological advantage.
