STEAMGARD® users in the corrugated board manufacturing industry report a number of financial and operational benefits by replacing traditional mechanical steam traps with THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM®.
THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM® is engineered to remove condensate continuously and completely from pre-heater cylinders, corrugating rolls and hot plates. The resulting higher quality steam increases surface temperature at each point and improves heat transfer. As a result, the bonding between the medium and liner becomes stronger. Loose liner problems are controlled.
THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM® delivers the heat required to run heavyweight and double wall products at high speeds. Yet it offers the flexibility required for producing lightweight single wall products.
THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM® improves production speed on the corrugator. Consistently higher temperatures mean higher speeds without sacrificing quality. STEAMGARD® users report machine speed increases of up to 20% on lightweight products and up to 50% on heavyweight and double wall products.
THE STEAMGARD SYSTEM® also reduces side to side warp, another common defect, by providing uniform temperatures across critical heating surfaces. A flatter, stronger board leaves the corrugator for smoother operation and less waste in printing, folding and gluing operations. Our customers report reduced scrap rates that directly improve plant profitability.
