FIPS

In 1986 was FOMAT de 1e die begreep dat toenemende snelheden van machines, een synchronisatie vereisen, tussen het aanvoer transportsysteem en de machinesnelheid, om mogelijke vervuiling en een verkorte levensduur het vilt te voorkomen. Vandaag de dag hebben de laatste generatie van FIPS (smart serie) door het ontbreken van eindschakelaars, gezorgd een verdere verlaging van de onderhoudskosten.

VAF - VACUUM CONTROL VALVE

Fomat control valve was designed to maintain a constant level of vacuum in the suction boxes. When a high vacuum is requested, the valve ensures a stable and proportional control, while with low vacuum, unlike other valves, it closes completely and put in communication the suction boxes with the atmospheric pressure, eliminating any internal residual pressure.  The VAF valve is equipped with Fomat positioner for compressed air saving, inside which it is possible to install the vacuum transmitter to read and regulate the valve. This valve was designed to significantly reduce costs and time for maintenance. It can be provided with a dedicated control system or in remote connection with existing systems

DUOFLOW ROTARY JOINTS FOR COOLING

Basing on the plant engineering experience, Fomat designed a joint with cooling siphon for  calenders and cylinders suitable for paper industry application and studied to have low maintenance costs. Rotary joints are made by a cooling water inlet, a compressed air inlet to ensure the pressure difference and a water outlet. The joint cartridge is interchangeable with the steam cartridge. The water is injected in the cylinder by means of fan nozzles mounted on the fixed siphon, which ensure the uniformity of the cooling fluid.

DRY END TAIL BRAKER

The system consists of a toothed blade and adjustable air jets for the passage of the tail. During the paper passage, the toothed blade makes the cut and simultaneously the air jets ensure the passage of the tail to the pope, preventing that the same goes under the machine. The system is controlled with pushbutton or interfaced with the PLC of the dry end tail cutter. Safety interlocks are provided to prevent access to the cutting blades during operation.
