Solutions for the paper industry
The BASALAN size press is designed to apply a starch preparation to the dry sheet surfaces. The size press is located after the main drying sections of the paper machine.
The substance quantity applied is mainly controlled by the percentage of solids contained in the coating solution, and by the contact pressure between rolls in a mechanic way. The contact pressure between rolls is determined with the load of the moving roll against the fixed one. Some pneumatic springs (L.S. and L.A.) load the tilted jibs which hold the moving roll.
The main purpose of the sheet coating is to increase the paper strength
