Success through innovation

Product:

FTS2000 Filter Tow Spray Retention System.

Application:

The application of aqueous dispersion adhesive (PVA) fed by pressure pot, for tow retention adhesive on a filter making machine.

Overview:

The Filter Tow Spray Retention System is designed to apply a wide coverage of adhesive to the filter paper, anchoring the tow.
Installed either as an additional component to the Kaymich GFH system or as a stand-alone system, the FTS2000 is suitable for a wide variety of filter makers and combiners.

Key Features

  • Non-contact application reduces bleed-through adhesive contamination, compared to contact type applicator when using highly porous paper, improving cleanliness and decreasing stoppage for cleaning.
  • Increases productivity as stoppage for applicator cleaning is reduced compared to contact applicator types.
  • Pressure fed adhesive, a lower cost solution compared to pump fed options.
  • Improves segment (tow) retention compared with single line applicator, reducing segment fall-out.
  • The swirl pattern ensures a wide coverage of adhesive without significantly reducing the paper coresta. Delivers improved tow security without significantly reducing paper porosity (typically less than 32K reduction on 500K paper applying 0.088 g/m), decreasing cost as the paper coresta (porosity) requirement is minimised. Wide adhesive application from a single applicator. The width of the pattern can be changed but is normally around 10mm wide. Ability to apply a wide variety of adhesive patterns.
  • A ratchet style adjuster.
  • Easily installed.
  • Low maintenance requirements.
  • It replaces the requirement for multiple lines of tow retention, improving filter plug quality as the distortion caused by multiple solid longitudinal lines is eliminated.
  • Improves filter rod quality eliminating ridges of adhesive along the rod.

FAQs

Can the FTS system be used with multi segments filter?
Yes.

Can the FTS be used with the Kaymich GFH system?
Yes the FTS system can be sold as part of the GFH system or as a stand-alone applicator.

Can the FTS system be installed by the customer?
Yes, the system is easy to install. Optimum setting is dependent upon the machine speed, adhesive and paper used.

Note: 

Application not proportional to machine speed, application pattern set for optimum operating speed only.
Minimum adhesive viscosity 500 centipoise.
Maximum adhesive viscosity 1500 centipoise.
Not to be used with lubricated air supplies.

Notes

  • Available as a stand alone system or as option with Kaymich GFH system.
  • Pressure fed application is not variable in relation to making machine speed.
  • For pump fed system applying adhesive proportionally to machine speed, please contact Kaymich.
  • Minimum adhesive viscosity for pressure fed option 500 centipoise.
  • Maximum adhesive viscosity for pressure fed option 1500 centipoise.
  • Not to be used with lubricated air supplies.
