Stable operation under high-speed, high-nip conditions.
Yamabelt (shoe press belt) improves the dewatering efficiency in the press part of the papermaking process and also ensure stable, long-term operation.
The shoe press is becoming an essential component for achieving papermaking machines that are faster and more energy-efficient and also for improving the quality of the paper produced. Therefore, the requirements for shoe press belts under such critical conditions are diversifying and advancing.
Yamauchi applied its advanced polyurethane development capability and processing technology, which were accumulated more than 50 years, and successfully developed next-generation shoe press belts with dramatically improved durability, reliability, dewatering performance and other characteristics. Yamabelt is highly acclaimed by users all over the world.
We use our time-proven polyurethane development technology in order to improve the resistance against crack propagation and abrasion. Combined with the robust base fabric, this successfully extends the product life. Yamabelt provides high reliability over a long period of time even in high-speed, high-pressure operating conditions.
Maximizing our extensive groove processing know-how, we propose various groove design including intermittent grooves according to operating conditions, thus achieving excellent water squeezing performance.
