Success: How we helped a mill set a life record on the pickup felt

Check out our latest case study regarding a mill who was struggling to get to 42 day felt life. They were averaging 33 days, with a range of 21 - 42 days.  

By switching to the Patented AccuFlow2 design (which uses cabled monofilament yarn in the CD direction), the mill set a life record on the Pickup Felt at 47, the felt was still in good condition and the returned analysis showed a 23% reduction in weight loss.
