ProJet to supply two cleaners for BioPappel’s Veracruz mill in Mexico

ProJet received an order for 2 ProCleaner forming fabric cleaners from BioPappel, Mexico, for  Paper Machine # 1 at Veracruz mill. The order was received in July 2023 and the value of the order will not be disclosed. Delivery will be in 4Q of 2023.

The order is already the 6th from BioPappel, who are gradually equipping all their paper machines at all production sites with ProJet cleaners. There is already a total 16 ProJet cleaners running at other BioPappel mill sites, such as Durango, Tuxtepec and Tizayuca.

The 2 cleaners for the Veracruz-mill will be equipped with ProJet’s  ProCleaner Type 2.0. The “2.0” head is equipped with more nozzles for continuous cleaning and enhanced cleaning during sheet breaks. Cleaning water and contamination is effectively evacuated by a vacuum system.

PM1 produces medium board (23-33# at 2,500fpm), using 100% OCC. OCC is known for its extreme contamination on the paper machine clothing.

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, BioPappel 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.
