Hand Sheet former (Model TAPPI Type) for production of laboratory paper sheets for physical tests. The design of the drainage system provides a uniform flow across the entire wire, thus permitting exceptionally uniform sheets. Laboratory sheets, prepared from suspensions of pulp are used for determining physical properties such as apparent density, tensile index, tear index, folding endurance light scattering coefficient and air resistance. The conditions of sheet making should be similar to commercial production. Hand Sheet former for production of circular sheets.
