The felt washers are used for mechanical cleaning of felts on a paper machine. The felt washers use a vacuum to suck moisture out of the felt (water, chemical) which is subsequently drained from the paper machine through a suction pipe to the outside.
Cleaning results in improved papermaking quality while reducing energy consumption and increasing the lifespan of the felt and runnability paper machine.
The felt washer is made of stainless steel coated with HDPE or ceramic. The felt washer has an adjustable suction slot and an adjustable suction width with dampers. The design of the felt washer allows for height adjustment according to the felt position.
The felt washers can be made with one or two slotted and width from 1680 up to 6720 mm with or without supports.
