YOUNGSVILLE, N.C., Aug. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xerium Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:XRM), a leading global provider of industrial consumable products and services, recently launched EnerVent roll venting technology for tissue machines. EnerVent, which is patent pending, utilizes an innovative combination of roll grooving geometry which provides increased nip dewatering with softer, wider nips. It is specially engineered for rubber covers applied to tissue suction pressure roll positions and is already reducing energy costs and increasing machine speeds for existing tissue producers. EnerVent cover venting allows customers to utilize softer rubber cover designs such as Xtreme TS which improves overall pressure uniformity with the Yankee dryer.
