DryWay press is a shoe press with a felted-shoe roll on the top. On the bottom side, there is an open-surfaced counter roll around which the bottom fabric runs.
The DryWay Press section ensures less downtime
Some 60% of the removed water flows to the counter roll, while the rest is removed by the top felt. Because of the long nip, web dryness exceeds 40% when leaving DryWay press. By avoiding open draws, your process has fewer web breaks and less downtime.
The last press on the DryWay press section is a double-felted SymBelt shoe press with a liner load of up to 1,500 kN/m. On the top, there is a rubber-covered and deflection-compensated SymZL roll. On the bottom side, there is a shoe roll.
High dryness, less steam
With two shoe presses, DryWay Wet End is able to provide higher dryness values and savings in steam costs for any kind of pulp. Web dryness of over 53% is reached after the shoe press. An automatic tail-threading device takes the tail to the dryer and secures fast and safe tail threading at high speeds.
