Internal Size: A fourdrinier machine
producing lightweight specialty printing and writing papers was alkaline sized with AKD and used a bentonite microparticulate retention system.
The new three-ply paper fourdrinier machine
will use state-of-the-art technology to produce a strong, yet light-weight sheet of paper.
Although the fourdrinier machine
and many processes are aging, nobody is conducting fundamental research to allow the commercialization of significantly different methodologies within 15 years.
Since paper made on a fourdrinier machine
commonly has wire-side curl, top dryer cans are run hotter than the bottom cans to correct this problem.
With processing benefits unlike most synthetic fibers, Eastman Cyphrex flat polyethylene terephthalate (PET) microfibers process well on inclined wire, Rotoformer and Fourdrinier machines
There still are many excellent high-tech products directed to improving sheet quality and machine operations for cylinder and fourdrinier machines
, but new technology in these areas in the future will most likely come from smaller suppliers.
Chapter two, "Practical Applications," has four sections: Fourdrinier Machines
, Roll Formers, Two-Wire Formers, and Cylinder-Vat Machines.
Although towel and tissue grades were originally all made on standard fourdrinier machines
, the one-direction drainage and free-top surface limited the speed.
American mills have traditionally manufactured base stock for coated SBS board on conventional fourdrinier machines
with a conventional head box, dandy roll(s), conventional size press, and calender wet stack before the coater section.
