  • We understand how important the quality of our nozzles are to successful paper machine operation. All nozzles are hydro tested two separate times at 225 – 250 psi to assure quality performance. Each nozzle is individually inspected by one of our long term experienced employees for total stream integrity.
  • We know small parts make big contributions to the success of your mill. Our nozzles are hand-tested to ensure nozzle integrity, stream precision and performance quality. Our edge trimming machines and water supply systems are precisely engineered to help operators make safe adjustments during production.
