With a great number of Advantage ViscoNip press installations operating in production machines around the world, it has become the new standard for wet pressing in conventional Dry Crepe machines. A flexible liquid filled press body gives the Advantage ViscoNip press the unique ability to adapt to the Yankee dryer shell. This makes the nip load uniform during a wide range of linear loads. The Advantage ViscoNip press is very well suited for installation in existing tissue machines independent of original make.
The uniformity in pressing conditions can be seen in the remarkably flat cross machine dryness profile generated which also is visible in the very even moisture profiles achieved in the parent roll. These even profiles also improve machine runnability and reduce the risk of chatter marks on the Yankee dryer.
The Advantage ViscoNip press fully adapts to the Yankee dryer shape
The uniform cross machine direction operates over a wide range of linear loads, which opens for extensive possibilities to develop your products.
The patented Advantage ViscoNip technology is also an excellent option for tissue machine rebuilds, where the Yankee dryer might be limited to a nip load of 90 kN/m, which is common in many existing machines. A remarkable increase in dryness is achieved right away already at 90 kN/m compared to a Suction Press Roll.
Talk to us and we can tell you more about how a rebuild could be possible for your mill. We also have many examples of successful installations around the world to share.
Valmet Industrial Internet offers a wide portfolio of applications to monitor the performance and health of your ViscoNip. Automatic alarms can be sent to the Valmet performance centeres located in different locations around the world with 24 hours remote support. For easy overview we can create customized dashboards and diagnostic applications. Reliability allows for improved maintenance planning and using the predictive technology the operators can potentially avoid production losses.
