FELTS AND PRESS SECTION

The paper passes from the wire section to the press section which consists of a number of heavy rollers. The paper is conveyed through these rollers on thick felts of synthetic fibre.

More moisture is squeezed out of the paper like a mangle, and drawn away by suction. At this stage of the process the paper is still very moist.
