Did you know that a Paper Machine has a
‘Wet End’ and a ‘Dry End’?
The "wet end" of a
paper machine is a general term for parts of the system that involve a slurry
of fibres, fillers, and other
additives. When looking at a paper machine it is easy to identify the "dry
end" where a roll of paper is being formed. The rough dividing line
between the wet end and the dry end is often drawn at the wet-press section,
the last place in which water is pulled from the wet web of paper.
The Dry End is the part of the paper machine where the paper
is dried, surface sized, calendared and reeled.
