HEIDENHEIM, Germany, Sept. 30, 2010 (Press Release) -Thanks to the installation of SkyTop doctor blades on the PM 1 in Stora Enso's Eilenburg mill in Germany, the roughness of the central press roll was increased by 0.1 µm. This led to a better sheet release and lower draw.

Andreas Irmscher, PM 1 Production Engineer at Eilenburg, stated: "After the test results we decided to exclusively install SkyTop doctor blades at the central press roll. Lower draw in the press leads to higher speed of the paper machine and fewer paper breaks. A further benefit is the lifetime of SkyTop with 14 days. Additionally we are very satisfied with the reliable service of Voith Paper."

SkyTop doctor blades are especially designed for the cleaning and conditioning of the roll surface in sections with extreme mechanical loads, like the press section. Voith Paper's best fit for the press section is the TerraSpeed thermal coating combined with the SkyTop doctor blade. Linked in the best fit solution, both products can combine their unique advantages to a great overall performance.
