Potential improvements in productivity, product performance, uniformity and quality control could result from the application of (i) nano-enabled retention and drainage systems, (ii) nanofiltration systems to filter out various contaminants in papermaking effluents, (iii) nano-enabled roll covers for high-stress calendering applications, as in supercalendering, (iv) nanocoatings to create new functionality for paper and to enable dry coating processes, (v) nano-metal oxides to improve the rigidity and toughness of boilers and other high-pressure, high-temperature equipment, and (vi) nano-scale sensors for detecting temperature and moisture profiles, web uniformity, etc.
Metered size press coating in combination with on-machine hot soft or supercalendering has facilitated development of new grades.
The finish imparted by the small machine calender was insufficient, and it was necessary to improve the smoothness by light supercalendering.
The basic paper machine is covered; however, supercalendering and coating are not treated.
There is continued interest in metered size press coating--especially when combined with on-machine soft nip or supercalendering. The new higher brightness coated groundwood grades discussed above are being made using this technology.
He is respected for his work in paper coating technology--particularly in thermal finishing and soft nip supercalendering. His contributions have led to the wide use of compact thermal calendering.
Older generation LWC papers were manufactured in three separate operations: first the paper was made on the paper machine, then coated on an off-machine coater, and finally calendered in a separate supercalendering operation.
