TurnFloat web turning

TurnFloat web turningTurnFloat is an air turn for contactless web turning. A pad of pressurized air between the paper web and the TurnFloat nozzle surface enables contactless web turning. 

Main benefits of the TurnFloat

  • Pressure equalization chamber

=> Nozzle-to-web distance kept constant

  • Sectionalized air flow in the cross-machine direction

=> Impingement velocity of the air turn nozzles may be adjusted

  • Auto clearance control

=> Constant clearance between air turn and the web

  • Web tension indication

=> Means for optimizing runnability
