With BrokeGo, Voith has developed a reliable fabric for broke conveyors which quickly and safely removes broke following a web break. The strong and highly wear-resistant belt transports the broke directly to a pulper for further processing.
Web breaks cannot always be avoided. Generally, the broke paper drops into an area underneath the machine. To remove this broke efficiently and safely, Voith has developed BrokeGo, which is suitable for all paper grades. The ribbed upper surface stops the paper slipping from the belt. The underside is made from wear-resistant material, which results in a longer service life.
BrokeGo needs to have very different properties from the dryer fabrics that are often used as conveyor belts in the broke conveyor. BrokeGo was specially developed to meet the specific requirements of paper transport after web breaks in particular.
