The element ST is the first Intrisic 3 Layer Seam structure. It is a Hybrid construction utilizing a combination of a non-woven CD oriented base module between 2 layers of woven base modules. The directionality of the CD insert provides compressibility under pressure in the nip and resiliency on the exit side of the nip. The 3 layer design provides added void volume for increased dewatering potential as well as compaction resistance for higher loaded later presses. It can also be made as an endless construction.
- High dewatering rates: increased solids, lower draws, reduced energy consumption, higher production rates & machine runnability
- Increased life: compaction resistance, improved end of life performance-steady state operation
