"4. A paper machine fabric as claimed in claim 1, wherein the fabric is a wet wire（湿式抄網）."
"The dispersion may be first dewatered by gravity and then dewatered by vacuum suction means; the wet mat is then pressed to a specified thickness between rolls and the support wire（抄網）to remove additional water."
In this example, an actual mill stock for making fine paper, printing paper and writing quality paper and having 23% filler was subjected to various laboratory retention, drainage, drying and formation tests after treatment with various combinations of coagulant A (as above), flocculant E (90 mole % acrylamide with 10 mole % dimethylaminoethyl acrylate quaternised with methyl chloride, intrinsic viscosity 7 dl/g), and bentonite.
When polymer was added to thick stock, it was in each instance subsequently sheared using a large angle blade stirrer diameter 6 cm, shear speed 2,000 rpm. When polymer was added to thin stock, it was subsequently sheared using a propellor stirrer diameter 5 cm, shear speed 1500 rpm. When bentonite was added to the thin stock, the thin stock was then stirred with the same propellor stirrer but at 800 rpm.
All mixing, shearing and retention tests were carried out in a baffled Britt Dynamic Drainage Jar fitted with a 250 μm screen wire（抄網）."
"The conventional dilution stages and other processing stages leading to the machine wire necessarily subject the suspension to turbulence and shear and this will inevitably result in degradation of the initial flocs and possibly some resuspension of fibres. The dilution, for instance with white water from the wire（抄網）, generally gives a thin stock having a solids content of 0.3 to 2%."
