Pindo Deli in Karawang, Indonesia, converted at the PM 5 a standard rubber covered suction press roll with 29.57 % open area to a Voith's SolarSoft polyurethane cover with a suction, blind-drilled and grooved surface design, which has 45.6 % open area. "The improvement of open area significantly improved the dewatering capacity and has immediately led to a 5-20 % increase in machine speed dependent on the tissue grade", explained Usep Saepul, Production Manager PM 5. "This change is a major move forward leading to a production increase of between 5 and 12.7 tons per day dependent on the grade of tissue."
