CRESCENT FORMER

The Crescent Former is the culmination of technological improvements derived from our experience in the manufacturing of four machines since the 1960s (Plain Wire; Sloped Wire; Twin Wire C-Former; and Twin Wire S-Former). The first Crescent Former was invented in the 1970s by the multinational Kimberly Clark which held the patent until the Nineties.
Our technological innovations and more than 50 years of experience in the field of tissue ensure the highest levels of performance from the Recard Crescent Former.

Each Recard Crescent Former is designed to optimize the real operating speed of your production line. We have achieved performance of over 2000 meters per minute.

Technical


  • Single or two layer head box

  • One or two press rolls configuration

  • Suction press roll diameters from 780 up to 1450 mm

  • High efficiency hoods with innovative energy cost reduction solutions for such as recovery boiler, integration with cogeneration plant etc

  • Different designs, each one optimized for different operating speed

  • any guaranteed working speed up to 2000 m/min

  • different types of approach systems to be selected according to mill layout and/or process needs


Benefits


  • Increased softness of the tissue due to the absence of pick-up and the presence of “Forming felt.” The absence of pick-up also makes possible the production of ultra-light tissue, up to 10 gsm on the wire

  • Minimum dispersion of the fines

  • Minimum formation of stickies

  • Absence of bottom-wire: lower cost than the Twin Wire

  • Reduced size of the machine: less space required for installation

  • Easy installation of the Crescent Former: reduced installation time and maintenance costs

  • Simplicity of installation and operation of the machine

  • Easy to move from one weight of tissue to another

  • Maximum versatility: the Recard Crescent Former can operate at low speed (400 to 500 meters / minute) and high speed (1700 to 1800 meters / minute). The machine is able to produce low, medium, and high volumes of quality paper
