We provide engineered solutions tailored to the paper processing industries for a variety of applications including drying, forming and paper handling that are efficient, reliable and cost effective. Our range well known industry brands, including Runtech, Elmo Rietschle and Nash, work across the industry in Pulp and Paper production and printing. We perform comprehensive on-site audits to better understand operational challenges and potential opportunities for improvements in air systems. We then provide experts advice, solutions and aftermarket care to maximize efficiency, reduce costs and ensure high quality, reliable air supply.
We perform comprehensive on-site paper machine audits that enable the identification of production problems in the paper machine. We will give you valuable information and recommendations how to improve your process and decrease energy consumption.
Compressed air systems for pressure conveyance or vacuum systems for suction transport systems can be used for pneumatic transport of pulp and wastepaper.
Blown air is used to cool the paper after it is pressed. Pure air is required as any contaminates will pollute and spoil the end product.
The pulp and paper manufacturing process require large volumes of water. Therefore plants are commonly situated next to a water source. The water extracted to be used in processes has to be cleaned of minerals, bacteria and other contaminants before it can be used in the manufacturing process.
Air knives deliver a continuous flow of high velocity air to remove moisture and debris. A reliable supply of low pressure air is required for successful operation.
Vacuum is required for a variety of applications in the pre-press area, including preparing images and film for scanning or exposure and for copying printing plates. There are also many applications where over-pressure is needed as well, such as for guiding plates or film in automatic systems.
In classic sheet fed offset presses, vacuum and overpressure is always needed for paper handling; at the feeder to separate the sheets, to feed the single sheets to the different colour-aggregates or to guide the sheets through the machine.
In post press processes blowers are used in folding and cutting machines, whilst combined pressure and vacuum pumps and individual vacuum pumps and compressors are used in collating and book-binding machines.
