Auxiliary piece of equipment that gives paper a very smooth surface by passing it through a series of alternate metal and composition rolls, revolving with high speed and pressure.
Calender rolls, alternated with resilient rolls and standing free from the papermaking machine. Applies an extra smooth finish to the paper.
Machine for giving paper a very smooth surface by passing it through a series of alternate metal and composition rolls, revolving with high speed and pressure.
Alternating steel and fiber-covered calendar rolls that increase a sheet's gloss and smoothness. The supercalender is a separate piece of equipment located close to the dry end of the paper machine.
Off machine calender rolls that heat and iron paper to provide a high gloss finish.
In papermaking, a calender stack, separate from the papermaking machine, with alternate metal and resilient rolls, used to produce a high finish on paper.
A stack of alternating steel and fiber covered rolls at the end of the paper machine that are used to increase a sheet's gloss and smoothness.
To calender using alternating chrome and fibre rollers to produce smooth, thin paper.
Alternating rolls of highly polished steel and compressed cotton in a stack. During the process the paper is subjected to the heated steel rolls and "ironed" by the compressed cotton rolls. It imparts a high gloss finish to the paper. Supercalender stacks are not an inherent part of the paper machine, whereas the calender rolls are.
A stack or rolls used in papermaking to apply a high gloss finish on paper.
To calender paper extensively until very glossy.
A supercalender is a stack of calenders consisting of alternating steel and fiber-covered rolls through which paper is passed to increase its density, smoothness and gloss. It is similar to a calender except that alternate chilled cast iron and softer rolls are used. The rolls used to supercalender uncoated paper usually consist of cast iron and highly compressed paper, while the rolls used for coated paper are usually cast iron and highly compressed cotton.
