Wefapress dewatering elements offer high wear resistance, outstanding surface quality and excellent gliding properties. This protects both the wires and the felts and ensures a longer service life than is the case with conventional PE1000.
By contrast to other manufacturers, Wefapress only uses pressed/sintered material. As extruded material is not employed, it is possible to eliminate internal stress and achieve dimensional stability. Re-processed material does not find use in manufacturing, with the result that dewatering elements demonstrate a homogeneous density and uniform dewatering along the entire machine width. Minimal wear enables longer running times, as well as lower maintenance costs.
