      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.

          Refining / Deflaking

          Refining influences the required product characteristics by modifying the strength potential. On one hand, this is done by activating the fibers, and on the other hand, by systematically changing the fiber length spectrum. Together with the correct choice of fibers, refining has the greatest influence on stock quality.
