No matter what forming section! No matter what paper grade! No matter what machine! With Primoselect Heimbach offers you an innovative forming fabric, which combines optimum drainage with the best runability. The foundation for this is an innovative weave concept, which is unique on the market.
Primoselect paves the way for unexpected flexibility: the special weaving pattern allows options to suit your specific wishes. You can choose between:
Atromaxx – the multiaxial module concept from Heimbach distinguishes itself by the selected combination of warp knitted and woven single base layers adapted to the specific demands of press configuration and paper grade. The wide range of combination possibilities provided by the modular construction technique enables fine adjustment to individual positions. Atromaxx is also available with seam.
Atroplan - woven press felt for all positions and press configurations. Ideal application for paper and board grades sensitive to marking, as well as for bulk print paper grades - for medium to high speed from Pick-up up to free standing presses. Atroplan is also available with seam.
High and continuous dimension stability; combination of single or multi layer base weaves for machines with the highest demands for handling large volumes of water and high press loads. Suitable for all paper grades.
With yamabelt. Heimbach offers another product for application within the shoe presses. Against former times when shoe press belts had been regarded as roll covers this point of view has changed dramatically in the past few years. Heimbach has recognized this trend and it was possible to win a competent partner across the dewatering processes of a shoe press with Yamauchi as producer of the yamabelt.
With implementation of Yamauchi´s KnowHow into adequate belt designs and the proven (dewatering) strengths of Heimbach press felts in shoe presses it was possible to combine both products into a package that positively influences the efficiency and runnability of shoe presses.
Yamabelt. provides excellent mechanical and chemical resistance by the use of a complete new family of Polyurethanes. New and patented solutions of edge relief designs prevent from the well known problems of belt cracks especially in the shoe edge areas of the pressbelts. As well the doctoring of the shoe press belt is being optimized by means of a special surface treatment of the Polyurethane within the grooves. With this solution higher dry contents after the press section can be obtained.
In summary it can be stated that by common installation of a yamabelt. as well as a adequately designed Heimbach press felt a perfect symbiosis for best press runnability will be created.
