Double backer belts
Bluebacker Corrugator Belt
The new generation HybridMesh has an open and robust mesh structure that reduce noise emissions and increases traction features. This is suitable for universal use on double facer machinery. The surface features ensure safe traction of the corrugated board during the whole bonding process. The belt is supplied with a flock seam.
- Excellent flatness and directional stability of corrugated medium
- Consistent belt properties due to heat setting process
- High level of transverse stability and consistent belt running
- Kevlar Edge reinforcement to avoid abrasion wear
- Saving electric drive energy up to 15 to 20 percent
- Reduced glue consumption due to faster evaporation
- Up to 9% less heating energy and about 5% less glue in the drying process
- Significant increase in production speed due to faster drying of the medium
- Standardly electrostatic dissipation and Kevlar edges to avoid abrasion wear on heat plates
Nextwire offers an extensive selection of wire belting to handle your most demanding processes. Our featured broadlooms are capable of producing stainless steel, bronze, invar, and other exotic metals in a variety of weaving configurations. In addition to our standard woven products, Nextwire is able to offer Teflon coating for added release, reinforced edges and edge treatments to promote increased life and productivity.
Nextwire offers a variety of weaves and widths due to our broadloom weaving capabilities. The heat setting process ensures minimal shrinkage and stretching creating a more stable fabric. Our extensive inventory of woven fabrics can be customized to meet specific customer demands.
Both metal and synthetic belts may be manufactured with your preferred seaming style.
The addition of edge treatments may significantly increase belt life and lower the total cost of ownership (TCO).
Caul Screens & Tow Bars
CleanSheen II and CleanSheen Pro caul screens are considered the industry standard in North America. The unique composition of brass electroplated high tensile wire results in improved cleaning capability, increased heat transfer, corrosion and rust resistance and a smooth surface for better release. CleanSheen Pro is also available in a stainless steel and brass coated combination. All screens are manufactured to site specifications and can be provided with tow bars attached to eliminate on-site assembly. Nextwire specializes in customization and additional options as requested.
Continuous Press Belts and Screens
Nextwire has the capability of manufacturing a single length up to 650 feet. Due to our manufacturing capabilities, we are also able to provide site specific material combinations to meet your needs. Multiple seaming options are available as well as on-site field service brazing.
Nextwire manufactures spiral link and woven synthetic fabrics ranging from 250 to 1,200 CFM in a variety of weave patterns. Our extensive inventories ensure that Nextwire has the ability to provide your required material for deaeration, pre-compression, pre-heating or other forming applications. Multiple seam and edge options treatments provide for an array of operating parameters.
Seam and Edge Options
Nextwire offers a variety of seams and edge treatments for both synthetic and metals belts to provide optimal results.
Pulp and Paper
Pulp Washing and Bleaching
Nextwire has extensive inventories of stainless steel, Kynar and ArmorCloth hybrid woven wires designed to withstand extreme pH ranges and temperatures. Mesh openings range from 10 to 100 mesh to allow maximum drainage and fiber retention. As the largest broadloom weaver of pulp filtration fabrics in North America, Nextwire can offer widths up to 315” in most fabrics.
Pulp and Paper
Our ArmorFilter has become the fabric of choice for lime mud filters. Its unique construction results in the tightest woven stainless-steel wire available on the market. The high mesh count in the machine direction creates a fabric that lies flat on the drum with minimal edge ripple and results in faster sheet formation and reduced start up time. Our unique method of installation ensures better end sealing. Nextwire offers a variety of synthetic fabrics for twin wire presses. We can also supply specialty fabrics such as salt cake filters, disc filter bags and AES screens.
Pulp and Paper
Nextwire offers a variety of fabrics used in the recycle process such as de-inking, pulping, sorting, and paper making.
