Voith has introduced UpElement, Element-Series of add-on solutions, to its portfolio of tissue press fabrics.

The felts have a higher saturation capability during startup, which ensures optimal dewatering of the paper web.

UpElement makes startup up to 50 per cent faster compared to standard press fabrics, without compromising operational stability or long-term performance.

By reaching full machine speed significantly faster, UpElement keeps energy consumption to a minimum and delivers notably higher production output per felt.

Depending on the operating setup, UpElement can increase output by tens of thousands of dollars of saleable product per year.
