HEIDENHEIM, Germany, Dec. 4, 2018 (Press Release) -With Topaz and TopazHigh, Voith is adding two new members to the CleanWeave product family. The dryer fabrics target an extended service life in a medium hot environment.

Whereas Topaz has a dense weave structure with lower air permeability, TopazHighfeatures an open weave structure for higher air flows. In addition to excellent drying performance, both fabrics also meet the requirements for resistance to hydrolysis and abrasion. As a result they allow for long service lives, even in very challenging dryer sections. The dryer fabrics are particularly suitable for board and packaging paper machines, where the conditions are often hotter and more humid.

The unique CleanWeave product range with minimal intersection points and a low internal void area prevents the accumulation of contamination in the dryer fabrics ensuring they are easy to clean. Thanks to the continuous flexing around rolls and cylinders, contamination is also worked out of the fabric. This means that Topaz and TopazHighmaintain their cleanliness and drying efficiency over their entire lifetime.
