VACUUM TABLE PRESS A unique system for pressing uses a vacuum table: a tabletop with small holes in its surface, a holding tank underneath, and a connection for a strong wet/dry vacuum. Plastic is draped over the sheet of paper (covered with a lightweight felt) lying on the table surface. When the vacuum is attached and turned on, it sucks the plastic down onto the sheet and draws water out through the holes in the tabletop. This system has several advantages. It can press very large sheets of paper, which would be difficult, if not impossible, to fit into a hydraulic press (not to mention lifting them into it).
Rinse the tamales/corn husks gently by dunking them in the bucket of clean water. They are fragile at this point, so handle them carefully. 5. Take a few pieces of tamales/corn husks, and pat them dry between sheets of newspaper. 6. Lay the tamales/corn husks on a dry piece of interfacing. Notice that one side of each piece has ridges, and the other is smooth. Place the side with the ridges toward the interfacing, so the smooth side is up. Lay five or six pieces next to each other so that they just touch.
Since the water is running so slowly, it can take up to 3 hours to rinse completely. When rinsing is complete, the water should not feel slimy, and it should run clear. Cooking Rags Sizing a substance that makes a paper more water-repellent. Internal sizings, such as Hercon 70, are added to pulp at the end of the beating cycle and are in the paper as it is formed. External, or surface sizing, such as gelatin, is applied to the surface of dry sheets. 56 PAPERMAKING BASICS If you use new rags or textiles, it is a good idea to cook them to soften the rags and remove any sizing or finishing materials, such as starches, fire retardants, and waterproofing agents.
