Constantly rising productivity and quality requirements lead to higher demands on fabric and web run and thus also on the dryer fabric tension. Reliable fabric tensioning systems are therefore increasingly gaining significance. Exactly adjustable and constant dryer fabric tension is the most important precondition.
Constant dryer fabric tension is negatively influenced by:
• Fabric tension peaks during wrapping of dryer cylinders or when lumps pass through
• Changing tension roll wrap with dryer fabric returns without outside guide rolls
• Insufficient measurement of dryer fabric tension

The modular DryStar upgrade package offers the possibility of ropeless threading and the certainty of increasing the runnability of the paper machine by stabilizing the web. This means that downtimes due to breaks or rope maintenance can be reduced. Threading times can also be reduced as a result of ropeless threading.
