BTF™ Dilution Profiling System Retrofit

The GL&V BTF™ Modular Dilution Control Retrofit System allows existing headboxes to employ high-performance state-of-the-art dilution profiling. Regardless of machine speed or basis weight, the BTF Retrofit System can elevate your facility to modern consistency profiling control without replacing your existing Headbox.

Applicable to virtually all existing Headbox designs, the BTF™ Retrofit System can often be pre-installed while the existing machine continues to produce paper, thereby minimizing lost production downtime. The BTF Dilution Control System provides unparalleled CD 2-Sigma Dry Weight Profile Control. Reduced variability in CD weight distribution translates into reduced sheet caliper variation, and very often leads to reduced moisture variability. These changes can result in significant energy savings through more efficient pressing and better face contact in the dryer sections. BTF Dilution profiling (a.k.a. consistency profiling) improves sheet quality and machine productivity with very low volumes of dilution water. The natural stock delivery of the BTF System improves sheet edges which can increase usable sheet width when added to an existing Headbox system. The BTF design also acts as a highly efficient and effective pulsation dampening device. The flow turn down ratio of the BTF Distributor is unmatched by any other flow spreading technology, thereby providing existing paper machines with substantial flexibility in grade and/or product mix.

  • Full 316L Stainless Steel fabrication (optional materials available)
  • Polished wetted parts (optional electro polished available)
  • Durable, robust, proprietary hose materials and interior finish provide a service life of 10+ years
  • Zero recirculation required from the fan pump, alleviates +/- 10% flow load from your existing fan pump
  • Outstanding pulsation elimination capacity
  • Fully automated dilution profiling control (manual control optional)
  • Excellent control of CD basis weight profile without the cost of a new Headbox
  • Superior sheet edges
  • Wider saleable sheet potential
  • Eliminates header recirculation from the fan pump
  • Improved CD control permits better CD caliper which can improve pressing and drying efficiency
