        CleanLine Excell – for forming fabrics and press felts

        Consistent and uniform cleaning

        High fiber retention and uniform dewatering are key factors of performance in the forming and press sections of your paper machine. CleanLine Excell cleans the surface and structure of forming and press fabrics more effectively than oscillating high pressure needle jet showers or standard traversing showers. The CleanLine Excell cleaning system uses less water than high pressure showers, significantly reduces chemical cleaning, and is even suitable for fine fabric surfaces.

        Your benefits

        • Improved drainage and sheet dewatering for forming and press fabrics
        • Uses less cleaning chemicals
        • Greater fabric permeability retention
        • Better uniformity
        • Less water and energy consumption
        • Better runnability

        CleanLine Extract4D – for dryer fabric cleaning

        Cleaning in every direction

        Contamination in the dryer section reduces productivity by affecting drying efficiency and runnability. Fabric permeability is reduced by contamination on the fabric surface, at the crossover points between the yarns, and within the voids of the structure. Conventional cleaning systems with water jets in one direction only contact a fraction of these contaminants. CleanLine Extract4D, with water jets in four directions, overcomes the limitations of conventional cleaning systems.

        Your benefits

        • Improved retention of fabric permeability
        • Increased drying efficiency
        • Better sheet stability and tail threading
        • Uses less cleaning chemicals
        • Optimized sheet quality

        CleanLine Extreme – for tensioning fabrics after coater

        Continuous online cleaning for
        high-quality coated paper

        Achieving a high-quality surface on coated papers requires the fabrics after coater sections to be free of contaminants. Stripes from blade failure, contamination from breaks, and contamination stripes at the paper edges are concerns that impact both production efficiency and paper quality. Often it is only possible to carry out manual or offline shock cleaning of the fabrics after a sheet break or during shutdowns. This means that in between cleaning, spots of coating can run on the fabric surface. The solution is CleanLine Extreme, which cleans both online and offline to provide additional benefits for papermakers.

        Your benefits

        • Cleans consistently both online and offline
        • Yields the highest quality coated paper
        • Improved fabric performance
        • Safe operation and reduced manual handling
        • Easy maintenance
