Blade Holders

Essco offers a wide variety of standard and custom blade holders, with a model suitable for any application. Designed to meet specific needs, the holders are manufactured from 316L stainless steel, which provides high corrosion resistance. The heavy-duty construction ensures consistent performance in the most demanding environments.

Whether your setup calls for the rigid styling and versatility of a KF holder, the even blade pressure of the ETUniform™, or a unique specialty design, Essco will deliver precisely the blade and holder configuration for a job well done.

Commitment to application performance drives every step in the development process, from engineering to manufacturing to installation. For example, machining of the blade holder-mounting surface is critical, which is why Essco takes great care to ensure the surface treatment will conform as needed, whether straight or crowned. Essco goes even further to chart the machining results in thousandths of an inch, and then maintains the chart as a permanent quality control record of the blade.

Essco blade holders are also easy to adjust and maintain. This makes them the ideal choice for high-stress situations, such as pulp and paper applications, for which there are multiple holder options.
