MaxExtractor and MaxResistor, from Richard Hough Ltd, set new performance standards in the tough environment of modern textile wet process plants.

The increasing use of harsh or aggressive chemicals and resins in textile wet processing presents new challenges for manufacturers and their equipment suppliers and has now led to the development of a revolutionary new range of high efficiency covers for squeezing rollers.

The MaxExtractor and MaxResistor roll covers, from Richard Hough Ltd (RHL), of Bolton, UK, are made from high-tech new compounds, specially developed to stand up to attack in the demanding environments of modern finishing plants. They also give optimum squeezing performance and increased roller life, leading to enhanced productivity.

The MaxExtractor range, for high-expression final squeezing or padding, is 30% more efficient than conventional rubber rolls.

For even tougher tasks in dyeing, bleaching and mercerising for example RHL has launched the MaxResistor roll covers in three versions, each matched to specific processing requirements.

The company can supply the new MaxExtractor and MaxResistor products as complete rolls, or re-cover existing rubber rolls with the new high-performance compounds.

RHL is one of the global leaders in calendering and expression roller technology, with a history dating back more than 200 years and a current client base spanning the textile industry worldwide.

A company spokesman said the new roll covers represented a significant breakthrough: “We are delighted to be able to bring this completely new range of compounds to the Textile Processing market at a time when excellent chemical resistance, combined with high squeezing performance, are essential to maintain low energy costs whilst maximising output.

“The new range of covers has been specifically designed to suit OEM machinery builders, as well as the end-user processing mills.

Roll covers are custom made in RHL's own design and manufacturing facilities, to ensure highest quality. In 1991, we became the first calender roll manufacturer to achieve ISO 9002 quality certification.

We have in-depth expertise in full compound mixing from uniquely developed blends, backed up by technical support from our fully-equipped laboratory, where we are able to carry out laboratory expression tests on customers' fabric samples if required.”
