OptiFlo headboxes - superior performance
The key words of a properly functioning headbox are uniformity
. The hydraulic performance of the headbox mainly determines the properties of the paper. The headbox controls the web’s profiles, and helps to establish paper properties such as formation. The OptiFlo headboxes distribute stock uniformly across the forming section, without disturbances, and impart sufficient turbulence to the flow to keep the fibers dispersed. Equally important, the OptiFlo headboxes are simple to operate and remain clean during operation.
