Spiral Dryer Fabrics
Fabrics made of thermoplastic monofilaments have been used in a wide range of applications. Such fabrics are commonly used in the papermaking industry for transporting and dewatering the aqueous media there found. More broadly, such fabrics are used as filter media for wet, dry, hot and cold solutions and dispersions.
A spiral fabric comprising a plurality of coils having loops meshed together to form channels at points of overlap between adjacent loops, locking pins positioned in the channels to join adjacent coils to form a mesh, and the improvement wherein a cable structure of at least two thermoplastic filaments is used as at least one component of the fabric.
