With AiroGuide Tune Green, Voith launches the first DIN CERTCO-certified bio-based guide roll cover for more sustainable paper production
- First guide roll cover certified according to DIN CERTCO for bio-based products
- Successful step in the development of sustainable products as part of the Papermaking for Life program
- Renewable raw materials reduce carbon footprint
- Less wear of fabrics and reduced waste
AiroGuide Tune Green is a composite cover using bio-based raw material with mineral fiber reinforcement. It is particularly designed for the wet end and features improved corrosion protection with enhanced edge sealing to meet the corrosion requirements in humid areas. Its good stress resistance and high wear resistance result in less grinding and maintenance requirements compared to standard covers. Therefore, the roll cover leads not only to less wear of the fabrics and reduced waste but also contributes to important resource savings in paper production.
Due to the combined development of the AiroGuide Tune Green and SkyClean doctor blades, the machine can operate without additional lubrication showers – targeting less water consumption and reduced misting.
