Voith‘s TissueFlex XD press fabric for tissue production has very good saturation for maximum dewatering. It is produced with a lower caliper offering faster break-in times allowing the machine to reach higher productivity sooner. At the same time, TissueFlex XD has a resilient structure, so that the key properties of the fabric are maintained over a long period.
Over time, the operating speeds of tissue machines have increased substantially. Press fabrics like TissueFlex XD meet these more demanding requirements. Despite its low thickness the structure of TissueFlex XD remains stable, even at high operating speeds. The tissue manufacturer can expect high runability and increased productivity.
Thinner press fabrics often have the drawback that they quickly drop in performance due to wear, compaction and contamination. But this is not the case with TissueFlex XD: Voith has incorporated a unique non-woven layer that retains the properties of the fabric for a long time and delivers consistent performance. The special needling of the base, batt and non- woven layers also reduces wear and achieves a smooth tissue surface. The combined layers produce an even pressure for efficient drying.
TissueFlex XD is a benefit for most tissue applications and can also reduce energy consumption.
