is design to improve paper properties such as strength aspects, printing abilities etc. by adding chemical substance to the paper web. PMP offers three Size Press types: Pond, Metering, Combined. The use of a particular type depends on the machine characteristics.
According to our experience, 50% of web breaks are caused by poorly functioning Size Press, so it is important to use the latest technology in this area. A most sophisticated solution in sizing technology is our Intelli-Sizer® Metering Size Press. Benefits of application Metering Size Press are directly related to eliminating the common problems of a conventional pond type size presses such pond turbulence, poor pickup control, low solids concentration, sheet edge problems, lower after drying demand, uneven reel profiles and finally reduction of sheet breaks.
PMP’s Intelli-Sizer® can be equipped with a carbon fiber application head. Through the use of high-tech composite material we were able to obtain superb heat stabilization, high construction stiffness, excellent damping properties and simpler construction (compared to stainless steel heads there’s no need of additional thermal stabilization equipment which results in a reduction of maintenance and media costs).
