A hydraulic headbox installed on a modern tissue machine is designed to deliver a uniform, low consistency stock stream to the nip between the two forming fabrics. Several geometries of the stock jet, including jet length, jet angle, and jet impingement, have a large effect on sheet formation and sheet quality. This module covers some common headbox adjustments and other equipment settings that can affect the stock jet geometry.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of the headbox in the tissue making process
  • Define the terms "jet length," "jet angle," and "jet impingement"
  • Identify the jet length, jet angle, and jet impingement in a stock jet diagram
  • Describe the impact of stock jet geometry and sheet formation on the appearance and strength properties of the sheet
  • Describe the effects of the slice opening and fan pump speed on stock jet geometry

The following key questions are answered in this module:

Which stock jet geometries are important for gap roll formers?
Jet length, jet angle, and jet impingement are all important.

Why is it important to have a short free jet length?
A short free jet length reduces the time available for the fibers to reflocculate before the sheet sets, and if there are multiple layers, it minimizes mixing between the different layer furnishes.

What is jet angle?
The jet angle is the angle between the stock jet and the outer forming fabric.

What is jet impingement?
The jet impingement is the percentage of the jet thickness that impinges on the forming roll.

What variables can affect stock jet geometry and sheet formation?
The gap between the breast roll and forming roll, slice opening, fan pump speed, and jet-to-wire ratio all affect sheet formation and the optimum stock jet geometry.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

One more sheet attribute that can be affected by headbox operations is fiber orientation in the sheet. The overall or average orientation of the fibers in the sheet is largely determined by the relative speeds or velocities of the stock jet and the forming fabrics. Normally, the relationship between the two speeds is expressed as the the jet to wire ratio, where wire refers to a forming fabric. In short, if the stock jet's speed is significantly lower or higher than the fabric's speed, the fibers will align more in the machine direction. With more fibers aligned in the machine direction, the sheet will tend to be stronger in the machine direction. Sheet formation and sheet appearance are also affected.

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
