Pulp & Paper

The forming section of a paper machine, often referred to as the “wet end,” is where a slurry of fibers are filtered onto a continuous fabric loop to form a wet web of fiber, which is later pressed and dried to form a solid sheet in the paper-making process. 

As the name implies, the wet end is a damp environment, creating harsh conditions for the materials and equipment used in the forming section of the paper machine. Further, as many as fifteen different chemicals can be used in this section of the process. All this results in a challenging environment that requires ongoing attention from those tasked with maintaining and operating the paper machine.
