element™ Platform

The element is the first Intrinsic 3-Layer Seamed base design in the industry. It is a Patented Hybrid Design utilizing a combination of a unique non-woven CD oriented base module inserted between a top and bottom woven base module. The CD non-woven insert is made of single monofilament yarns and provides increased void volume under load and post nip resiliency. The 3-layer base design provides excellent compaction resistance and maintains low flow resistance in the nip. Available in two versions: 1) element DS – a heavier high void volume base design with a coarser “element” insert and 2) element STK – a lighter medium void volume base design with a finer “element” insert. Available in Endless or Seamed Construction

Product Benefits:

  • High dewatering rates: increased solids, lower draws, reduced energy consumption, higher production rates & machine runnability
  • Increased life: compaction resistance, improved end of life performance-steady state operation
