With NipcoFlex T up to 5% higher dryness can be achieved compared to a configuration of suction roll pressed against the Yankee or earlier generations of shoe presses. All this is possible without compromising paper quality. In addition, a production increase or energy savings up to 20% are feasible due to higher after-press dryness. The high flexibility of the shoe allows tracing the Yankee deflections more precisely and results in a more uniform cross directional dryness profile. Switching between bulk and dryness mode and vice versa is even possible during production, increasing the machine’s efficiency.
The NipcoFlex T shoe press has a much simpler construction compared to the first shoe press generation. The 2 rubber bellows pressing device instead of several pistons along the machine width results in fewer controls required and thus in simpler operation.
