Sizing Solutions

BTG Sizing solutions improve process performance across the whole machine

When it comes to recycled based containerboard, strength of the packaging is one key factor. Deteriorating raw material quality and demand for lower basis weights can make it very challenging to fulfill strength targets. Today film metering size presses are widely used for the starch application to support strength development.

Our experts can help you achieve significant operational savings in coating and metering. You will also benefit from unmatched flexibility and advanced system capabilities with chrome-plated and ceramic Durorod® rods, rod beds and accessories.

However, starch application alone does not guarantee stable strength properties. It is always a combination of base sheet properties and surface application.

That´s why BTG´s holistic approach combines their capabilities throughout the process, from stock preparation to size press. BTG´s wet end application expertise and fiber management solutions ensure optimum furnish mix with minimized variation and disturbances. Sheet uniformity is optimized with headbox energy optimization. This gives surface application best chances to contribute to strength development.

Our team of experts will survey starch application, including metering elements and starch preparation, while wetend process survey reveals hidden bottlenecs.
