Saudi German Co., Dammam, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (SGN) has awarded an order for a Power Cleaner system to ProJet.
SGN has a total of 4 nonwovens production lines and has now decided for a ProJet Belt Cleaner for their newest SSMMS-line. The R4 line has a width of 3.6 meters and operates at a speed of up to 1,000m/min. With the increasing demand of this type of nonwoven material because of COVID19, the need for 24/7 flawless production has become more important than ever. ProJet’s Power Cleaner assists in juts that; non-stop production without the need for stopping the line for belt changes or manual cleaning of the belt.
The SSMMS-line uses a spunmelt extrusion processes. Both Spunbond and Meltblown are known to create contamination issues on the conveyor belt (also known as spinbelt), each process having its specific characteristics and belt contamination issues. Belt contamination reduces runnability of the production line and therefore output of face-mask material of the whole plant. ProJet’s Power Cleaner runs 24 hours per day, using high pressure water that is heated to 100 degrees Celsius (steam), vacuum systems, compressed air and rotating brushes to keep the spinbelt clean. A clean spinbelt guarantees high quality sheet and longest lifetime of the belt.
The ROI is estimated to be 6 months. Mohammad Abu Latifah of Saudi German Co. explains:” If the ROI of 6 months is achieved, we will immediately invest in a Power Cleaner for our remaining 3 lines. That is expected in early 2022.”
