Press Z-Box

The Transphase Press Z-Box Steam Profiler is custom designed to fit the space available in the press section. Best results are obtained when installed against a suction roll or box.

The Z Plates help to keep the steam jets clean while forcing the steam into convergence with the sheet, maximizing the exposure of the sheet to the steam while minimizing the ability for the steam to spread in the CD. The converging zones constrain the steam flow into intense narrow CD zones to provide greater CD moisture control than conventional steam boxes. 


  • Typical steam use of 0.07 to 0.12 tons/ton
  • Increased sheet dryness increase of 1.5 to 3 %
  • Up to 80% reduction in 2 sigma CD Moisture
