The forming section not only sets the paper properties; what happens here also strongly affects the runnability of the whole machine. Monitoring and analyzing the drainage process helps you:

  • improve the sheet dryness and save energy
  • control paper properties like printability, two-sidedness etc.
  • reduce printer complaints like wire marking, cockling, linting/dusting, fiber picking etc.
  • selecting the best fabrics and dewatering elements
  • reduce waste of retention chemicals
  • reduce energy used by drives and vacuum pumps
