RHL unveils innovative squeeze rolls for textile finishers
Feb '14
Ground-breaking innovations and detailed technology advances are producing buoyant sales for Richard Hough Ltd. (RHL), the specialist producer of de-watering, squeezing and calendering rolls for textile finishers.
The UK-headquartered company has recently announced a major practical breakthrough with the development of squeeze rolls which automatically compensate for the deflection occurring under full load during water extraction. This, along with the earlier launch by RHL of the unique RoberteX fibre roll with full resistance to harsh chemicals, has attracted huge market interest and positive customer feedback.
Automatic deflection compensation
The latest deflection-compensating squeeze rollers avoid the need for a specially-profiled parabolic camber to counteract the varying pressure across the rolls. This led to problems at regrinding, with many Asian customers not having access to the sophisticated grinding machines able to form the required parabolic shape. 
Now, with the new rolls automatically compensating for any deflection, customers need only to have them reground to the normal parallel profile. Says Anthony Ashton: “This is a huge breakthrough as regards roll accuracy and hence higher performance of the squeezing roll.” The entire RHL squeezing roll range, including Roberto, RoberteX and Resilio, can now all be supplied in deflection-compensating design.
Global first in chemical resistance
The launch in 2013 of the RoberteX fibre squeeze roll was a global first – the only product of its type able to offer total chemical resistance in the range pH 0-14. This unique suitability for even the most aggressive and difficult textile processing environments, whether caustic or acidic, has made the RoberteX an immediate worldwide success, with sales continuing at high levels.
