During forming, draining and pressing, the paper sheet undergoes strong water removal, which, when passing through the clothing, leaves residues that impregnate the canvas and felts.

The Protect™ Line is specific for the chemical conditioning of garments, promoting the passivation or dispersion of these residues, through continuous or intermittent application (shock), keeping the garments in adequate operational conditions, promoting:

  • Improved process stability and efficiency
  • Increased quality of the sheet produced, substantially reducing dirt and speckles
  • Reduction in the frequency and time of stops to clean clothing and other parts of the process
  • Increased productivity

Continuous treatment with the Protect™ Line extends the life of the clothing and offers significant gains in operability and overall paper machine efficiency.
