Basis Weight Valve

The basis weight valve is necessary to control with accuracy the paper basis weight, thus  ensuring a constant profile in the machine direction. 

The basis weight control valve is an essential part to secure a constant machine direction (MD) profile.

FOMAT basis weight control valve was designed in order to guarantee a high precision degree and a resolution of 10.000:1 - independent of the actuation time.

Some of the features of our equipment are the prevention of plugging risk, the removal of mechanical backlash and a linear relation between the valve opening and the flow.
