September 5, 2018 – Feltest has introduced its AirSpeed/2 meter, which monitors the permeability of the press felts over the Uhle boxes in paper machines.

It’s important to measure felts to help plan machine downtime and control runnability problems.

When applied on a running press felt, the AirSpeed/2 determines whether the felt is too open, too dense or operating properly. It also helps to determine whether the dosage of cleaning agents is appropriate. Its low-friction plastic head contains a high-precision vane that accurately measures the air speed through the felt. The rigid, telescopic rod is suitable for the paper mill environment, and the device records the minimum and maximum value per measurement.
