Size press

Product description
Size press is made as two-roll press with hydrarulic or pneumatic loading. Press rolls are settled horizontally and its movable roll (first roll in paper run direction) is arranged under the stationary roll.


The rolls are dynamically balanced on demanded speed and can be covered with different coats (rubber, ceramics) depending on produced kind of paper and type of sizing agent. The sizing agent proceeds through distribution pipes between the rolls and retained by outside dams. Volume of sizing slurry can be controlled through set of valves, which are regulated either manually or electric-pneumatically. Paper web proceeds through the bath to be sized. Sizing agent surplus is led through system of waste troughs and pipes back to the working station. Roll surface coming not in contact with paper web and front parts of the rolls are cleaned by set of side and front doctors. Paper can be sized according to demand on both or one side only in the sizing press. Paper web run through the size press is modified by use of shifting unit of inlet guide roll. After sizing the paper is led through guide roll under pressing part onto spreader roll, which spreads the paper web across its width before inlet to the after-drying part (usually on a pair of drying cylinders with chrome-plated surface). System of threading ropes is part of the size press and its design enables save feeding of the paper web from previous to the following drying section of the paper machine.

Scope of delivery

  • complete machine according to description of main parts
  • accessories according to customer´s inquiry


  • high sizing efficiency
  • high operational reliability
  • small space demands

Paper surface treatment

  • surface sizing - to get an effective quality improvement of produced paper and reduce sizing agent consumption due to their better retention (compared to sizing in substance)
  • surface treatment by special agents - to reach hydrophobic, greaseproof properties etc.
  • surface dyeing - costs saving compared to dyeing in substance, reaching of speacial color effects and reducing of waste water pollution
  • thin layer of special coats - thermoplastics, pigments, clays etc.
We offer complete overhauling and rebuilding of size presses and their parts besides production of new ones.
