James Ross FabriCaresystem offers clean PM clothing through fabric life
James Ross Ltd., Elizabethtown, ON, part of the IBS Paper Performance Group, says its FabriCare™ cleaning system offers permanently clean paper machine clothing throughout the life of the fabric.
For dryer fabric cleaning, the FabriCare is positioned where the fabric wraps a roll to clean the sheet side of the fabric. The cleaning water rebounds off the roll surface back towards the cleaning head, where air handling devices remove the contamination and mist from the process via the integrated catch pan.
FabriCare also increases the heated airflow efficiency of dryer fabrics; maintains uniform cross-machine fabric permeability; eliminates shut-downs for manual cleaning; eliminates breaks caused by stickies; improves dryer section runnability and reduces water and energy use.
The FabriCare ultra-high pressure cleaning system is primarily used in dryer sections. However, they are increasingly being used for wet-felt cleaning due to their unique control features including streak cleaning that is especially important on lightweight grades.
An additional benefit of their use here is their “green” aspect of reduced water consumption compared to conventional highpressure showers.
