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. Valmet’s roll covers are running and proving their performance each day in largest pulp dryers in the world.
Valmet has an excellent selection of rubber covers providing reliable and cost efficient operation. For cases in which traditional approach no longer provides optimal wear resistance, there are more modern materials, such as composite or polyurethane covers available for the pulp drying process. Compared to customary rubber compounds, these modern roll cover materials bring clear, long-term benefits in longer running periods and improved dewatering.
Valmet’s 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 are recommended for the most demanding conditions.
Valmet roll covers can be used with iRoll – the most versatile and sensitive online profile measurement tool in the industry. This technology provides real-time insights into the pulp drying process, making it possible to adjust and optimize performance to the highest level. iRoll applications can be for optimizing press nips, reducing web breaks in pulp dryer with tension profile measurement or improving drying section performance with iRoll Temperature.
