ProJet, Meerssen, Netherlands and Williamsport, PA, USA won a tender for the supply of 2 new high pressure showers for the Forming Section, which will be delivered to Modern Karton’s PM5.
Modern Karton’s PM5 produces Fluting and Testliner (70-160gsm) made from 100% OCC on a 8230mm wide machine at 1,600m/min. OCC is known for its extreme contamination on the Formign Fabrics, which is exactly the reason that Modern Karton chose ProJet. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered in May, 2021 and installation & start-up in July, 2021.
The ProCleaner Type F (Forming Fabrics) use a single traversing head that cover the fabrics almost three times as fast as the existing conventional oscillating showers. Furthermore, Modern Karton expects to achieve substantial water savings because the ProJet Cleaner uses only 5.0litre/min of water; a conventional shower consumes over 160 l/min.
Furthermore, the Pro Cleaner, Type F, delivers the following operational and performance benefits:
• Substantial cleaning water savings (= operational cost reduction + improved profitability): the Pro Cleaner provides superior cleaning performance, while only consuming 1.3gpm (5.0 liter/min) of water. A conventional oscillating shower consumes over 100gpm of water, leading to substantial more electrical power and waste water treatment costs.
• Water mist elimination is achieved by the application of air knives that contain water mist and contamination, which is discharged through Venturi tubes and finally into a save all pan.
• Targeted cleaning enables an operator to control the Cleaner for not only overall CD fabric/felt cleaning but to also apply targeted zone/strip or edge cleaning.
