The TissueFlex V3 press fabric is used in the press section of tissue machines. It features improved compaction resistance and a high degree of elasticity, giving uniform pressure distribution in the nip.
This press fabric design provides a unique multi-axial structure. Due to the Vector position, the press fabric has very good stability but nonetheless a high degree of elasticity, and as a result consistently high dewatering is achieved. In addition, TissueFlex V3 gives better moisture profiles due to the uniform pressure distribution in the nip. This leads to a more effective heat transfer and allows a significant reduction in energy costs. The compaction-resistant Vector position gives the press fabric an extremely open structure, which leads to less contamination. Tissue Flex V3 allows higher machine speeds and thus an increase in productivity.
