IsoFlo® & IsoFlo-V™

IsoFlo®-V Unit

Application

JohnsonFoils’ IsoFlo® is a patented design featuring blades at different heights mounted on a specially designed lovac unit. The vacuum level in the unit is adjusted to pull the fabric down over the lower blades, causing a vertical motion of the fabric and stock, to generate activity.

There are over 150 successful IsoFlo® installations worldwide. Over 60% of US linerboard and almost 90% of US bleached board are produced with IsoFlos.

  • Variable control of activity level at each table location with a simple adjustment of vacuum levels
  • IsoFlo® can drain large volumes of water, which allows lower headbox consistency
  • Proven track record on many recycle grades and difficult-to-drain furnishes
  • Low vacuum dewatering dramatically improves first pass retention
  • Custom designed systems provide flexibility for applications with a wide range of grades
