GLV Introduces the FlexJetTM Family of Headboxes

GLV announces the launch of its new FlexJetTM line of headbox solutions, including new technology designed to optimize performance across a diverse mix of paper making machinery from linerboard, to packaging, fluff pulp, fine and specialty paper. The introduction of the FlexJetTM line expands GLV’s headbox capabilities, and provides multiple options with updated technology and tailored solutions built to serve the specific needs of mills with a wide range of applications. Models include the FlexJetTM F, FlexJetTM S, FlexJetTM R and the FlexJetTM C, specifically designed to apply Microfibrillated Cellulose (MFC) and other additives.

“The engineering behind the development of FlexJetTM technology sought to solve problems for our customers,” explains Marc Foulger, Global Business Manager, Headboxes for GLV. “The innovative nozzle design of each FlexJetTM model offers the widest possible range of MD: CD ratio control, a key metric for optimizing sheet properties for many grades. The nozzle enables the headbox to produce a squarer sheet for grades such as linerboard, and therefore greater cross directional strength on the paper machine.”

FlexJetTM, the newest advancement in sheet forming technology, marks GLV’s latest innovation in the company’s more than forty year history of delivering customer-centric solutions in engineering, machinery

 

and manufacturing. The company brings the FlexJetTM technology to market after numerous successful installations and headbox replacement projects in North America, Europe and Asia. In recent years GLV has pioneered other, long-term, sustainable solutions for paper making, chemical pulping and stock preparation including the MagTrim® slitter positioning system, Coru-Lok® washer deck attachment system and the DD® series refiner.
