Voith introduces new guide roll cover AiroGuide

Wednesday, Jul 12, 2017

With the addition of AiroGuide to its product range, Voith is offering a guide roll cover in a modern fiber composite material suitable for all paper machines, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

Endurance tests in the field showed that the new guide roll covers were able to increase the replacement intervals also in positions suffered from high wear using standard rubber covers. This reduces downtimes and results in lower total cost of ownership.

The high wear resistance of the cover helps to ensure that the fabric wear profile stays straighter for a longer period, because the roll wear will not be transferred to a higher fabric wear. Like all composite roll covers from Voith, AiroGuide covers can also be repaired in the case of minor damage, avoiding the need for a complete replacement.

The purpose of guide rolls is to guide or redirect wires, felts or paper in a paper machine. AiroGuide is a highly versatile modular cover concept that can be used for every guide roll position in every section of the paper machine: wire guide rolls, felt guide rolls, paper guide rolls.

Voith Paper is a group division of Voith and the leading partner and pioneer in the paper industry.
