SMALL ROD –
Admittedly, metering rods are rather inconspicuous in paper production. Nevertheless, they play a very decisive role: Metering rods must function reliably even with high solids applications. Coating defects caused by defective metering rods are immediately visible.
Each individual metering rod is subject to constant stress. It is in use 24 hours per day, seven days per week, until it must be changed – sooner or later. If this replacement is not part of a scheduled maintenance, but rather the result of premature wear of the metering rods, large amounts of waste are generated. It is precisely for these reasons that the metering rod has our undivided attention. We use highly wear- resistant materials, rely on superior processing quality, and user-optimized surfaces. All this ensures that our metering rods function optimally, allowing maximum value creation.
