In synthetic and natural fiber manufacturing processes, Kadant products are used in the initial fiber drawing and stretching stages to the final finishing applications. New technologies in rotary unions and sealing devices, steam distribution and handling systems, water heating, and roll cleaning systems increase process efficiency, reduce energy costs, and help companies to be more sustainable in their operations.
Roll cleaning systems are used to remove stock accumulations, water, pitch, and filler buildup. Roll cleaning systems’ unique designs are compact and improve uptime, reducing maintenance costs.
A rotary union is a rotary sealing device that connects rotating equipment to fixed piping for the transfer of steam, water, thermal oil, coolant, hydraulic oil, air, and other media. Rotary unions can be designed with multiple passages and manage multiple media types simultaneously.
