The ProCleaner Type F (Forming Fabrics) and Type P (Press Felts) use a single traversing head that cover the felts almost three times as fast as the existing conventional oscillating showers. Furthermore, SCG expects to achieve substantial water savings because the ProJet Cleaner uses only 1.3gpm (5.0litre/min) of water; a conventional shower consumes over 40gpm.

Delivery of the Cleaners is scheduled for Q3, 2020.
