Web cleaning before printing has been proven to be very efficient to reduce down-time due to cleaning. Printing quality has also in most cases been improved. KELVA’s wide product portfolio and large number of non contact web cleaning installations ensures a good result in almost any case.
In the newpaper printing process a KELVA HS65BT Non Contact Web Cleaner (Brush Type) with a web width of 1700 mm was installed and the benefits for production were clearly:
- Cleaning stops decreased from 3 x daily to 1 x week
- Less RSI related complaints due to decrease in heavy cleaning tasks
- Radical decrease in use of chemical cleaning solvents
- Better final product
