Kadant Johnson debuts steam joint for paper drying

June 9, 2020  By P&PC Staff

Kadant Johnson has launched the new PT2X steam joint for paper-drying applications.

The company says the patent-pending design, which uses 200 psig steam, is capable of 25 percent higher operating pressure than traditional paper dryer steam joints.

A new seal cartridge design includes a high-visibility wear indicator and a protective shroud.


The PT2X rotary joint is part of a system that includes Kadant Johnson stationary syphons and Turbulator Tube bars. Together, they allow paper dryers to operate their steam and condensate system over a wide range of conditions, with flexibility and reliability.
