  12. 12. FORMING FABRICS should ensure….
  13. 13. FORMING FABRICS - Our specifications
  14. 14. FORMING FABRICS - Our specifications
  15. 15. FORMING FABRICS – Our Experiences <ul><li>Advantages of TRIPLE layer: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Thanks to higher FSI, better Retention and less Web Breaks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extended Life due to higher Caliper of Fabric and more diameter of Bottom weft </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Good drainage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>BUT…… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Some times high moisture after couch </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fines throw towards Top wire </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. FORMING FABRICS – Our Experiences <ul><li>We tried….. </li></ul><ul><li>For TOP & Bottom position, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Double layer with Double layer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Double layer with Triple layer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Triple layer with Triple layer </li></ul></ul>

  20. 20. FORMING FABRICS – Our Experiences
  22. 22. PRESS FELTS – Our specifications
  23. 23. PRESS FELTS – Our Experience….
  24. 24. PRESS FELTS – Our Experience…. <ul><li>As can be seen…. </li></ul><ul><li>Performance of Imported Press felts is superior with respect to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>OFF-Press Moisture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Better Runnability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extended Life </li></ul></ul>
  25. 25. DRYER SCREENS – Our specifications <ul><li>1 st Unirun : 95 cfm </li></ul><ul><li>2 nd Unirun : 110 cfm </li></ul><ul><li>3 rd Group : 150 cfm </li></ul><ul><li>4 th Group : 250 cfm </li></ul><ul><li>5 th Group : 250 cfm </li></ul><ul><li>6 th Group : 250 cfm </li></ul>
  26. 26. DRYER SCREENS – Our experience…. <ul><li>For Unirun Groups, we use Imported screens to contain sheet fluttering. </li></ul><ul><li>For Conventional groups, we use both Imported and Indigenous screens. </li></ul>
  27. 27. DRYER SCREENS – Our experience…. <ul><li>Indigenous screens are comparable in steam demand. </li></ul><ul><li>The difficulties with the indigenous screens are </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Relatively short life </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mounting delays </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Seaming time for indigenous and imported screens are 1 ½ hour and ½ hour respectively. </li></ul></ul>
  28. 28. DRYER SCREENS – Our experience…. <ul><li>But for seaming delays and relatively short life, indigenous screen performance is satisfactory. </li></ul><ul><li>No Screen mark </li></ul><ul><li>No edge damages </li></ul><ul><li>No slack edges and fluttering of screens </li></ul><ul><li>Thus avoiding moisture variation across deckle of sheets. </li></ul>
  29. 29. EXPECTATIONS FROM CLOTHING SUPPLIERS <ul><li>Forming Fabric: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The forming fabric should stay flat during web formation throughout the life span. For good profile quality, the fabric should not curl on the edge and no ripples should be visible between wire rolls. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The forming fabric design should ensure good retention of fines and fillers in the web. </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. EXPECTATIONS FROM CLOTHING SUPPLIERS <ul><li>Forming Fabric:(contd.) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The surface of fabric should be smooth to minimize fabric marking resulting from the knuckles of the yarns. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The fabric should retain its drainage characteristics throughout life span. </li></ul></ul>
  31. 31. EXPECTATIONS FROM CLOTHING SUPPLIERS <ul><li>Press Felts: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requisite felt compaction should be over within 8 to 12 hours. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In order to maintain target dryness off-press throughout span of felt life, felts should stay open and not choke after 2 to 3 weeks. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The wear of felt surface should be even. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fiber shredding from felt should be minimum. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Felt edges should be properly treated to ensure trouble-free guiding. </li></ul></ul>
  32. 32. EXPECTATIONS FROM CLOTHING SUPPLIERS <ul><li>Dryer Screens: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The screen design should ensure dimensional stability and minimal choking. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The screen should remain flat throughout its life span. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There should not be any marking on paper. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The screen air permeability to be maintained uniform across the width throughout the life span. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Good edge sealing should be ensured to avoid breaks due to loose strings and guiding issues. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Post dryer screen seam should hydrolysis resistant to avoid failure of seam. </li></ul></ul>
  33. 33. CONCLUSIONS <ul><li>Certainly, we see distinct improvements in quality of indigenous clothing manufacturers. </li></ul><ul><li>With constant interaction and follow-up, we are confident that indigenous manufacturers will be able to meet the requirements of paper makers and help them in producing quality paper at competitive cost. </li></ul>
  34. 34.
