The WebVac Web Cleaning System from Static Clean is a continuous-duty cleaning system designed to provide contact or non contact cleaning of narrow and wide webs in a variety of critical applications – enabling converters the ability to simultaneously improve the quality of product and increase profits by reducing rejects. In a single package, the WebVac combines three proven cleaning technologies – powerful vacuum, static neutralization, and compressed air blow-off to remove dry contaminants from narrow and wide webs quickly and efficiently. Once removed, the WebVac captures and collects the contaminants for safe and easy disposal.
The typical WebVAC configuration first employs a static neutralizing bar to neutralize static electrical charges on the web that electrostatically bind contaminants to the surface. A gentle blast of compressed air supplied by the air tube lifts the contaminants from the web surface into the air. Vacuum from the vacuum collector then draws the airborne contaminants into the WebVAC hood, carries them to the collector and traps them in the collector’s filter bag module for safe disposal. In the contact cleaning mode a soft brush is mounted in front of the static bar to loosen the contaminants just prior to static neutralization and removal. In some special cases the position and sequence of the static bar, air tube and brush may vary but the WebVAC system will continue to follow the fundamental operating principle of static neutralization, compressed air blow-off and vacuum removal of dislodged and suspended contaminants.
