Particulate Removal Vacuums

Multiple production processes of paper, film, and foil materials create particles that can contaminate the web. Contact and separation of the web material with the machine rollers generates static electricity that results in an electrostatic adhesion, bonding contaminants to the surface of the web. The faster the web operates, the more complicated this problem becomes. Contaminated surfaces cause defects, which results in quality problems, costly rejects, and ultimately dissatisfied customers.

Simco-Ion offers a variety of Particulate Removal Vacuums for web & sheet cleaning systems. The cleaner that is right for you depends on how clean you need your surface to be. Most systems are configured with static bars that neutralize static charges and prevent retraction of contaminates to the web surface.

The Mark I uses a high pressure low volume vacuum collector to remove particulate down to 20 microns in size from webs and sheets. The Mark I Web and Sheet Cleaning System includes brushes and static control bars before and after the vacuum slot. Removal of dust and dirt improves production speeds and lowers the incidence of product quality defects. An Ion-O-Vac’s is normally mounted where material has more than 30 degrees of surface contact with a roller or cylinder. This maximizes the cleaning effect of the high pressure vacuum. The collector must be located in close proximity to the heads. Ion-O-Vac Systems are custom designed for each application.

  • One sided or top and bottom web cleaning
  • Contact and non-contact configurations
  • Brackets and ducting included
  • Micrometer adjustments for precisely locating the cleaner head over the substrate

  • Brushes slide in and out for easy replacement
  • Economical replacement brush pricing
