Oman-based Keryas Paper Industry LLC has ordered two power cleaners (dryer fabric cleaners) for their Paper Machine 1 (PM1) from ProJet. The new cleaners will be installed on the first and the second Unirun. The value of the order has not been disclosed.

Notably, ProJet has already supplied more than 40 power cleaners to paper mills in the Middle East in the last decade. The HP cleaners are installed in the forming and press sections as well as the dryer sections of the machines.

The PM1 produces corrugated medium and kraftliner, utilising 100 percent OCC. Since OCC can cause huge contamination on the dryer section, Keryas Paper Industry has selected ProJet yet again. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered in Q4 of 2022 whereas the installation and the startup are expected to take place later in 2023. The Power Cleaner will be ProJet’s Power Cleaner 2.0, which is the upgraded version.

The upgrade consists of a smaller cleaner head, more nozzles at a higher pressure and an improved vacuum/discharge system. The 2.0 version has a unique 3-stage self-cleaning station, which ensures that the system is superior in terms of runnability compared to its peers. The combination of all these improvements is an enormous increase in cleaning efficiency and a reduction in maintenance.
