ProJet received an order for 2 Power Cleaners (dryer fabric cleaners) from a paper mill in Mexico. The order was received on March 3, 2022 and the value of the order will not be disclosed. Delivery will be in Q3 of 2022.
There is already over 30 ProJet Cleaners running at other Mexican mill sites, such as BioPappel, Pondercel, SmurfitKappa, Grupak and Papeles Ultra. These latest 2 Cleaners 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.
The paper machine 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 this customer 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.
