Compact R Paper Carrier Rope

Compact R Paper Carrier Rope represents a new generation of paper carrier ropes. Just as Compact UNO, it is a braided coreless paper carrier rope made of multifilament polyamide fibres. Thanks to a special method of braiding, the rope retains its circular shape for the entire service life. Enabling it to take the place of a conventional braided rope with core, while maintaining the comfortable splicing that is typical to ropes without core.

Individual fibres are treated with a special paraffin impregnating agent. This protective barrier protects the rope against effects of moisture and high temperature that are typical for drying sections of paper machines. Unlike the conventional construction of braided paper carrier ropes, individual strands of this rope are not twisted but form a uniform cluster of fibres that provides an increased protection of the rope compactness against sharp shapes of starch particles and other chemicals used in paper machines.

Compact R must be properly tensioned under operating conditions. Splicing is critical, and must be carried out according to instructions available in printed form and on video.
