Tissue machine rolls

High quality rolls for maximum performance

Low vibration levels for optimal runnability

Highest durability for long roll life time

Fully compatible spare rolls

Suction rolls

Suction rolls provide high performance on all types of tissue machines from low-speed machines to the latest design high-speed machines. Aside from rolls for Valmet machinery, we can also offer appropriate spare rolls for a number of other makes. Many of our latest roll technology innovations can be adapted into spare rolls that are compatible with existing rolls. This is an easy and cost-effective way to improve suction roll performance.

Spare suction roll shells

Suction roll shells are made of the highest quality Duplex stainless steel shell blanks manufactures through a plate hot rolling or centrifugal casting process. Precision drilling ensures extremely accurate hole positioning and superior hole surface smoothness.

Services for suction rolls include:

Deflection-compensated rolls

Deflection-compensated rolls provide reliable and stable operation. These rolls are the key elements for efficient pressing and calendering.

  • Swimming type Valmet Sym Nip Rolls 
  • Zone-controlled Valmet SymZ/SymZS Nip Rolls 
  • Valmet SymZL/SymZLC Shoe Press Rolls 
  • Valmet SymBelt Shoe Press Rolls
  • Spare Valmet CC rolls

Services for deflection-compensated rolls include:

Steel dryer cylinders

Valmet steel cylinders bring considerable benefits compared to traditional casted dryer cylinders. Shell thickness can be even 40% less than compared to cast iron providing a 10 percent better heat conductivity. These properties enable efficient heat transfer during the drying process and the drying capacity is higher with the same steam pressure than with cast iron cylinders.

Less weight means up to 5% less installed drive power in drying section.



High-precision tube rolls

Well-performing tube rolls are essential for tissue machine runnability. High reliability and easy repairability in the case of accidents are also important requirements for these rolls. Valmet’s high-precision tube rolls with optional quick change heads were developed to meet these specific demands.

  • Lead rolls (steel)
  • Reel spools
  • Lightweight lead rolls based on advanced composites

Cast iron rolls

Cast iron rolls offer a reliable, well-performing and durable roll option for all tissue machines. Our product range includes: cast iron press rollsdryer cylinders, chilled cast iron thermo rolls, reel drums, winder and belt drums.

Production consumables for cast iron rolls include:
