Cleanliness and protection with covers and coatings

Dryer section roll covers help to keep rolls and cylinders clean and protect surfaces from wear and corrosion in hot and humid environments. Choosing the right roll cover ensures good dryer runnability and allows savings in dryer fabric usage and doctoring. Valmet offers covers with proven performance for the dryer section. Valmet’s selection of roll covers includes thermally sprayed metallic coatings for rolls and cylinders, and thicker polymeric covers for paper and fabric guide rolls. The product portfolio also provides solutions for more specialized tasks, such as electrically conductive covers for lead rolls in positions where static electricity is an issue.   

Especially in the case of dryer cylinders, non-stick surface features combined with good doctorability provide uniquely desirable features for cylinders, allowing users to enjoy clean surfaces and problem-free operation. Cylinder coatings can be manufactured during shutdowns inside paper machines.
