Is your press fabric break-in time costing you production? Do you wish that new felts performed more as they do once they are settled?
The reason press fabrics take time to settle into their running state is that the batt structure and base construction both need time to reach optimum density. The low initial density of new fabrics causes the uhle boxes to remove too much water from the felt loop, which in turn affects nip saturation and pressing efficiency. Press fabric designers have to consider this effect to ensure that most of the useful life of the felt falls within the optimum range.
