BioPappel, Mexico continues to order Dryer Fabric Cleaners from ProJet

July 2021

ProJet received an order for 2 Power Cleaners (dryer fabric cleaners) from BioPappel. Mexico for their Veracruz mill, for their Paper Machine # 1. The order was received in July 2021 and the value of the order will not be disclosed. Delivery will be in Q4 of 2021.

The order is already the 5th from BioPappel, who are gradually equipping all their paper machines at all production sites with ProJet Cleaners. There is already a total 14 ProJet Cleaners running at other BioPappel mill sites, such as Durango, Tuxtepec and Tizayuca. The 2 Cleaners for the Veracruz-mill will be equipped with ProJet’s Power Cleaner 2.0. The “2.0” head is equipped with multiple nozzles for continuous cleaning and enhanced cleaning during sheet breaks, the “Shock Cleaning Mode”. Cleaning water and contamination is effectively evacuated by a vacuum system.

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 BioPappel continues to choose for ProJet. 

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. A clean dryer fabric, with consistently high air permeability, delivers important productivity and performance advantages for dryer section applications. The desired end result, of a clean dryer fabric, is a substantial improvement in available dryer capacity. ProJet’s innovative cleaning system is being applied successfully to very low basis weight product as well has heavy weight paper board applications
