Contiweb Fluid Applicator

Ever since 2004 Contiweb has introduced a remoistening and silicone applicator system successfully in the market. Based on the experience with over 200 systems worldwide, Contiweb developed a new approach how to use silicone better and more efficient without losing any performance on the remoistening function: the Contiweb Fluid Applicator (CFA).

Silicone Applicator and Remoistening System in One

This system controls individually the oil and water content for each individual side of the paper. The function of remoistening is fully guaranteed and requires no special precautions. Whereas conventional systems use a silicone emulsion, the CFA uses pure silicone oil which guarantees a considerable reduction in silicone oil consumption. In addition to the performance and silicone consumption benefits, the new system offers a substantial financial gain as it reduces your raw material costs.  With the current cost of silicone your savings are more than 60 percent.

Like many of our new dryer’s developments the CFA is offered as upgrade to existing Ecocool and Ecoset dryers. Moreover, the system is available as standalone unit, offering the same benefits, to replace the existing standalone silicone system in any press line.
