The invention provides a doctor blade holder system that includes a doctor blade support structure, an adjustment profiling plate, and a series of adjustment mechanisms. The doctor blade support structure includes an elongated slot for receiving a doctor blade and a separate elongated slot to house mounting hardware. The adjustable profiling plate causes pressure to be applied to the working blade in a continuous manner along the length of the working blade, wherein the profiling plate is mounted to a holder mounting plate with a series of pairs of mounting structures allowing unconstrained flexure, or rotation, of the profiling plate with respect to holder mounting plate around two axes. The series of adjustment mechanisms attach to the holder mounting plate and acting on the profiling plate, wherein the adjustment mechanisms are capable of displacing the profiling plate in a bi-directional manner.

A twin wire press for dewatering solid-liquid suspensions, such as pulp suspensions, between top and bottom webs is described herein which includes consecutive primary, secondary and tertiary dewatering sections. The primary dewatering section includes a wedge area. The secondary dewatering section is positioned adjacent to the primary section downstream therefrom and includes grooved rolls in an s-roll configuration. The tertiary dewatering section includes rolls in a scissor-nip configuration. The press rolls in the secondary and tertiary section are all supported onto a frame. Whenever maintenance is to be performed on any one of the grooved rolls or on the press roll assemblies, an overhead crane can for example be used since no frame structure is provided on top thereof.
