14 Saturator Unit

15 Hydro-Entanglement Unit

16 High Dilution Forming Major Markets Food Medical Filtration Industrial

17 High Dilution Forming Forming consistencies of 0.01 to 0.2%
Higher stock dilution to keep longer fibers from entangling Fiber lengths from 5 mm to 38 mm

18 High Dilution Forming Longer fibers require high dilution forming
Natural fibers Abaca, sisal, kenaf, cotton linters Man made & synthetic fibers Polyesters, rayon, nylon, glass, polyolefins

19 High Dilution Forming Two basic forming configurations
Inclined wire former (Deltaformer™) Vacuum cylinder former (Rotoformer™)

20 Deltaformer™

21 Deltaformer™ Inclined wire former - 15° to 35°
High dilution forming up to 400 gpm/in. Can form synthetic fibers up to 38 mm long Machine widths up to 5 meters wide Machine speeds up to 600 m/min Over 40 units delivered

22 Deltaformer™ Primary grades: Glass mat for roofing Teabag
Cigarette papers Auto filter Vacuum dust bag

23 Rotoformer™

24 Rotoformer™ Vacuum cylinder forming unit In use since 1953
Medium dilution forming up to 70 gpm/in. Machine speeds up to 700 fpm Machine widths up to 150 inches Over 90 units delivered

25 Rotoformer™ 2000

26 Rotoformer™ 2000 Improvements Reduced CD profile variation
Wider flow range Wider range of fibers Improved headbox adjustments Improved repeatability of process settings Better internal access to headbox

27 Rotoformer™ Primary grades produced: Filter Automotive specialties
Air bag Catalytic converters Ultra- filtration HEPA / ULPA Battery separator Electrical circuit board

28 High Dilution Forming Benefits/Advantages Formation of long fibers
Blending of wood fibers and synthetic fibers Excellent formation at low basis weights Excellent basis weight control at low basis weights
