      FilmLube – Integrated Uhle box lubrication

      Uniform conditioning of press felts is crucial for paper quality and machine runability, especially on high-speed tissue machines that operate above 1,500 m/min. In conventional systems, the Uhle boxes are lubricated by low pressure fan showers, which often get blocked and cause localized felt abrasion and a drop in felt performance. Thanks to a novel design, Voith’s FilmLube ensures uniform lubrication at all times.
