December 2021: ProJet successfully starts up Dryer Fabric Cleaners at Greif Board, Massilon, OH, USA

ProJet, Meerssen, Netherlands have successfully started up two (2) Cleaners at Greif Board in Massilon, OH, USA. PM1 produces Medium Board (23-33# at 2,500fpm), using 100% OCC. OCC is known for its extreme contamination on the 1st and 2nd Dryer Sections. The Power Cleaner is highly effective in maintaining cleanliness and permeability of Dryer Fabrics which is exactly the reason that Greif chose ProJet.

A Power Cleaner is a continuous cleaning device for Dryer Fabrics. The Power Cleaner uses a single traversing head that cover the fabrics using up to 14 ruby nozzles at a pressure of maximum 500 bar (7,500psi). Air knives and a Venturi-vacuum-system make sure all water and debris is effectively discharged into a save-all and from there, outside the machine.
