Modern roll cover materials bring more benefits

Pulp drying machines are harsh chemical environments for roll covers. Reliable roll covers are needed to reach long running periods between planned shutdowns and to ensure long fabric lifetimes. In many cases, traditional rubber covers no longer provide optimal wear resistance and can often be replaced with a more modern material, such as composite or polyurethane covers. Compared to custom rubber, these modern roll cover materials bring clear, long-term benefits in reduced maintenance intervals and improved dewatering. 

Our online roll cover tool makes browsing through Valmet’s roll covers and coatings easier than ever. You can find roll covers such as rubber cover Press Roll Cover PT with improved wear resistance, Press Roll Cover VT, a tough composite cover that provides longer cover life, and hard coating Press Roll Cover TM for the most demanding conditions.

The tool also helps you choose the ideal roll cover for any roll position in a pulp drying production line. All roll covers and coatings for pulp drying can be found in one user-friendly view, along with their technical data.
