Paper Industry




ZENITH manufactures rollers for paper industry based on roller operating parameters. Roll technology involves the manufacture, covering & servicing of large metal rolls (Up to 9 mtr. Long, 1.8 MM in Dia & 60 Tons WT). Over which clothing (Wire & Felt) products & between which paper web moves from wet slurry to finished paper. Many rolls are used in each paper making machine. Zenith covered products provide a surface that gives mechanical properties necessary to process the paper sheet that delivers the desired paper qualities by the producer. Our roll qualities are based on parameters like application, chemistry, speed, temperature, pressure, Roll geometry, deflection, balance & coefficient of friction. Our products include:

  • Rubber Covering
  • Re-Grinds
  • New Core Design & Fabrication
  • Core Repair
  • Ultra sonic test & Balancing machine
  • Crowning
  • Grooving
  • Engineering Services
  • Extensive Field Support

Rolls Covering
Zenith has developed a Premium range of compound Excel, Ultimex, Super Rock & Ultra Super Rockwhich has superior release characteristics and dimenional stability. Resistance to chemical & steam environment. Thermal stability & Operates at high pressure. The compound is Designed to withstand Nip Load upto 500 kg per Linear cm. The below chart is a glimpse of the newly developed superior compound.

Drilling provides longer nip dwell time. Premium bonding system for long service. Homogenious composition provides excellent moisture profile.
EXCEL 500
ULTRA FLEX COATING 88-92 25 TO 30 Film Press Roll Superior wear resistance at high speed, minimal after hardening for stable process, excellent runnability & economical solution coating.
CRYSTAL COATING 88-90 25 TO 30 Film Press Roll Good wear & wad resistance, provides long run, resistance to sizing chemicals, excellent water resistance (hydrophobic). Very good runnability.
CRYSTAL COATING 68-72 75 TO 80 Backing Roll
SUPER DIAMOND COATING 84-85 _ Top Press Roll Premium compound with superior release characteristics and dimensional stability. Resistance to chemical & steam environment. Thermal stability & Operates at high PSI.
SUPER ROCK COATING 84-86 _ Top Press Roll Excellent weart resistance, easy sheet release properties and good doctorability.
ULTRA SUPER ROCK COATING 85-87 _ Centre Press Roll Hard rubber coating which provides stable runnability & superior sheet properties. Effective doctoring at such demanding positions as bi-nip rolls. Superior chemical resistance & maintains hardness at high temperature.

Blind-Drill Dri-Press


Dri-Press is a modern technology product, which ensures premium quality paper and increased production.

Advantages :
  • Increased sheet dewatering
  • Better quality paper because of:
    • Smoother paper finish
    • Improved paper levelness
    • Better porosity features
    • Reduced linting
    • Improved printability
    • Reduced two sidedness
  • Improved cross-machine moisture profile
  • Longer felt life
  • Suitable for virtually all types of press sections
  • Cost-effective due to its improved runnability, energy savings and increased production.
  • We have Voith making drilling machine capable to drill Suctions roller dri-press & dri-press (B.D.R) efficient of drilling one roller within 12 Hours.

To make maximum use of your Dri-Press.
Zenith Rubber introduces the Dri-Press to provide more efficient water removal than other venting techniques.
Balancing & Ultrasound Machine
We have the facility of both balancing the Dynamic & static. Many ultra modern tests like Ultra Sound, Radiography for these minor invisible cracks are conducted before each core is passed on to avoid big problems at a later stage.
The C.I. hub, fabricated Steel hub are bored and machine shaft are Shrunk, Fitted into the hubs with precision. The Hubs are shrunk & power pressed into the pipe. The Spindles are machined & dynamically balanced.
         

Zenith is also manufacturing jumbo press rolls by seamless pipe & casting pipe. We suggest the crowning on roller considering defeclation of pipe and linear load by our experts
Grinding & Calendering
We grind all types of rolls to exact application, specification and surface finish as required by the application of roll in RA value and measure results with state of the art equipment.
o Calendar Roll o Granite Roll o Suction Roll o Press Roll o Size Press Roll o Backing Roll o Wire and felt Roll

We have 20 years of experience in grinding of different type of rollers, size & materials. We have latest high precision Roll Grinding Machine (German Herkules, Waldrich & Dronsfield) with precision measuring instruments (Base metal hardness, Roll clipper & RA meter micrometer 0 to 1900) well approved support system. For support & very expert operators, make us to deliver jobs with geometrical accuracies. Our capability of grinding of Roll.

Geometric Accuracies
Length - 9.5 mtr
Diameter - 2000 mm
Weight - upto 45 tonnes
  1. Concentricity - Less than 3 micro (Depends on Roller)
  2. Cylindricity - less than .1 mm(Depends on Roller)
  3. Parallalism - Less than 2-3 Micro(Depends on Roller making)
  4. Camber Profile - As per requirement
  5. Surface Finish-5 micros per meter
Regrinding & Regrooving


In addition to the standard inspection, repair and replacement procedures, a complete line of services are available to ensure that the roll returns to the millgood-to-go and in the shortest possible time.
Zenith Roller continually invests in the latest mechanical services, technologies and ongoing training of shop personnel ensures excellent quality on every roll.
Zenith Roller services roll covers beyond the new recover by providing regrinding, regrooving and inspection services on all rolls.
Drill Cleaning
Drill cleaning can clear severely plugged shells when water blasting and chemical cleaning cannot. Using the same drill machine used for drilling covers, complete cleaning can be accomplished in a relatively shorter amount of time.
NDT Services
Using local, reputable NDT service companies, Zenith plant can perform necessary non-destructive testing on all roll components. The official findings are included with Zenith Roller's final inspection and rebuild report.
Design and Fabrication of Dummy Heads
Often needed on short notice, Zenith Roller supplies dummy heads engineered and designed for every roll in the industry with little or no delay to the processing of the roll. Heads can be returned with the roll or kept at the local Zenith Roller plant.
Ultrasound Cover Inspections
Zenith Roller uses ultrasound inspection to identify the problems with the roll covers that may not be detected using other techniques. Trained technicians using specialized UT equipment can help detect voids, separations and cover looseness.
Roll Cover Patching
From minor blemishes to major damage, Zenith Roller's trained technicians and ASEs help to salvage and maximize cover life. Evaluated for viability and cost on a case-by-case basis, assistance with repairs are performed on-site or the rolls are sent to a Zenith plant for extensive repairs.
Training Seminars
Available on-site or at one of the Zenith Roller's strategically located plants, training seminars are structured to meet the specific needs of the customer. Topics range from roll rebuilding fundamentals and procedures specific to certain roll types, to general topics such as grinding, balancing, roll handling and storage.
