BTG IPI Headbox sheets

Enhance your high-quality paper parameters with BTG IPI headbox sheets

BTG headbox sheets improve the operations of the paper machine. The headbox nozzle is a critical area in developing high-quality paper parameters. Therefore, our unique manufacturing process produces sheets of highest quality.

We offer the smoothest polycarbonate surface in the industry through a special finishing process that provides an extremely smooth finished surface. In addition, we can apply a surface modifier to enhance the material’s release aspect -promoting even cleaner operating sheets.

The sheet tip is the primary controlling feature in developing the nozzle flow characteristics. Sheets come in various tip designs including: “Blunt”, “Tapered” and “Serrated”.

Two different types of material are available:  Polycarbonate and CPVC

BTG uses a unique and proprietary flow modeling technique we refer to as “Energy Expansion” calculations.  This method allows us to easily review the effect that specific sheet designs have on the flow inside of the headbox nozzle while also being able to categorize the fiber activity levels present. In turn we can then engineer sheet designs to allow the headbox to operate in its ‘sweet spot’.

To establish optimum sheet design for your particular paper grades, furnish or desired paper properties, contact a BTG world class expert!


  • Improved Machine Operating Performance
  • Cleaner Operating Sheet Surfaces mean less holes, less paper web breaks
  • Nozzle Flow optimized for Grades/Speeds
  • Premium sheets can withstand chemical boil out process, stay mounted in the headbox to reduce required downtime


The Energy Expansion analysis,  part of BTG solution audits analyzing the entire wet-end of the paper machine, identify areas for improvement. BTG Solution OnEfficiency.Pulp, for example, enhances headbox sheet designs by optimizing ash. Invite BTG solutions experts to review all of your wet-end needs.
