Wire and felt guiding systems

We provide different guiding system models - pivoting, parallelogram, linear, and vertical guides- that allow constant adjustment of wires and felts throughout the papermaking process.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

Lateral fabric oscillation is a frequent phenomenon that must be counteracted with specific guiding systems. Guiding systems are designed to keep fabric running in the centre of the rolls that support it. A minimum displacement of one end of the guide roll, in the proper direction, corrects the fabric run.

Keeping fabric in the center position means:

  • prevent spillage and damage;
  • reduce edge wear;
  • increase fabric lifetime;
  • optimize machine productivity.

CONTROL AND ALARM PALMS

Fabric control and guide activation are done through a palm valve – pressure balance valve or proportional bleed valve – where a paddle feels the fabric edge position. The valve controls the air flow to the automatic guide actuators.
The safety of the guiding system is enhanced by the use of an alarm palm, where electric sensors alarm the operator when excessive fabric run-out occurs.

WIDE RANGE OF GUIDING SYSTEMS

Reliable, sturdy and compact guides that require little and easy maintenance.

WHERE GUIDING SYSTEMS OPERATE

To prevent fabric lateral oscillation, guiding systems are present at all stages of the paper machine processing cycle: wire, press and drying section . Depending on the section, the guides are made of different materials: stainless steel for the humid and corrosive environment of the wire and press section, painted carbon steel for drying section hot environments.
