Improved rod life

Do your rods wear too fast? Are you taking too much time for rod changes?

Talk to our experts about changing from standard rods to BTG’s Durorod – the hardest chrome-coated rods on the market.

All papermakers running any type of metering rod film presses and rod coaters can benefit from using longer lasting rods. BTG’s ultra-hard chrome coatings can save you anywhere from €50,000 – 500,000 per year depending on your production.

Our dynamic chroming process creates the hardest chrome on the market. This guarantees the longest rod lifetimes. And using fewer rods means less cost. You can save anywhere from €10,000 to 50,000 per year depending on usage rates.

In addition, using fewer rods means fewer rod changes per month. And that translates into less downtime, increased productivity, less quality variability and other advantages. Typically, our rods provide a 10-30% increase in rod life compared to competitors’ products. This means you can save €50,000 – 300,000 per year depending on your production rates.
