Excellent milling and boring facilities utilising large capacity machinery operated by highly skilled personnel provide exceptionally versatile refurbishment services. Our service-facilities include equipment for profiling and taper grinding of cylindrical components up to 11 meters in length and 1.8 meters diameter, with matching capacities for dynamic balancing. We can also use our unique range of on-site grinding and super-finishing equipment, for in-situ service of larger components to the same exacting quality standards.
Local sales, projects, engineering and field maintenance services operate from the site in Darwen, as well as the international activities of machine relocation and Yankee services.
Ease of purchase, reliable and prompt logistics and information sharing are all key requirements for the efficient management of wear and spare parts. We offer a full range of engineered and replacement parts, as well as spare parts packages and process parts to ensure the optimal runnability and maintainability of production lines while also minimizing maintenance costs.
The Yankee surface is critical for tissue making and even small marks on the surface can cause severe damage to the paper web. Depending on the degree of damage, different methods to restore the surface become applicable.
Localized defects, grooves or scratches can mostly be removed by polishing. Damages like deep chatter marks, corrosion or wear requires on-site profile grinding to restore the optimum shape of the Yankee cylinder.
Valmet offers the following Yankee services to create the perfect Yankee surface, ensure optimum performance and extended service life:
Screen cloth removes non-uniform organic coating and hard build-up on the cylinder edges and helps to establish a uniform surface finish. It is easy to apply and prevents crepe blade vibrations, sheet holes and edge breaks due to build up.
The Yankee surface polishing (RSG) is recommended to restore the surface integrity, remove local defects, grooves, scratches and dents. The (RSG) polishing makes it possible to remove defects up to a depth of 0.2mm.
Yankee profile grinding is suited for more severe surface defects, chatter marks of more than 0.2mm depth and wear resulting in a loss of the ideal Yankee surface profile.
The grinding equipment can be installed either in the suction press roll or doctor position. It provides high accuracy and grinding quality.
The application of Valmet Infinikote Yankee Metallizing provides an excellent Yankee surface, reduces the frequency of regrinding and greatly extends the life of the Yankee.
A hard, protective coating with a homogeneous surface, good bond strength and high corrosion resistance. It is very reliable and unsurpassed in thermal coating life, heat transfer, blade life and Yankee surface efficiency.
