EnerStar technology to extend economic life of forming fabrics

Jan '11
Xerium Technologies Inc, a leading global manufacturer of industrial textiles and rolls used primarily in the paper production process, announced full global availability of EnerStar, an exclusive energy-saving paper machine clothing (PMC) technology designed to both reduce energy consumption and extend the economic life of forming fabrics that are vital to the manufacturing of paper.

With EnerStar, Xerium continues to take the lead in advancing the technology of PMC, which is critical to the quality of paper as it is produced. PMC products are highly engineered synthetic textile belts that are used to transport raw paper along the length of the paper-making process, as it is formed, pressed, and dried, keeping in constant contact with the paper as it is formed.

"This latest technological advancement in PMC further supports our strategy of innovation in the marketplace," said Stephen R. Light, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. "We are especially pleased with the excellent results already reported by our launch customers applying EnerStar on their machines, who have documented with energy savings of up to 15%. We continue to partner with our customers to help enhance their operating efficiencies and quality, while significantly lowering their cost of operation and inventories."

Developed by Xerium and its research partners, EnerStar is an exclusive technology produced with the highest-grade, modified polymers and is available as an optional feature for selected fabric designs from Xerium's Huyck.Wangner and Weavexx PMC companies.

Contact Xerium's Huyck.Wangner or Weavexx for more information on EnerStar.
