Richard Hough Enhances Resilio Technology

Calender roll manufacturer Richard Hough Ltd. (RHL), United Kingdom, has upgraded its Resilio roll covering technology.

The original Resilio roll concept, developed in 2008 by RHL jointly with Just Rollers Plc, combined RHL's mechanical squeezing and dewatering equipment with a specially developed dual-layer construction combining the features of hard and soft elastomer coverings. Compared with conventional elastomer roll covers, that roll improves water expression on knitted and woven cotton and man-made-fiber fabrics by 30 to 40 percent, and cuts costs by up to 40,000 euros per year.In the new version, RHL has enhanced the hardness and resilience of Resilio's construction to improve efficiency and performance. The company reports dewatering results are double those of conventional hard rubber rolls, thereby cutting customers' energy costs in half. The technology can easily be incorporated into a new machine or an existing installation, RHL reports.
