Voith recently introduced its new InduraClean (IDC) product family as part of its BlueLine stock preparation portfolio.
The system features an improved cleaner bank, which can be combined with both the new InduraClean IDC-4 and optimized InduraClean IDC-5.
As per the specific needs of the users, the modular cleaning technology focusses on either significant increase in production or energy reduction of up to 50 percent or improved separation efficiency.
The InduraClean IDC-4 combines four individual high-efficiency cleaners to enable high throughput with reduced space requirements. In addition, the cleaner bank features a flow-optimized design that avoids deposits in the cleaner bank due to rejects or heavily loaded grades.
Besides the revision of the cleaner connection, the bank has been extended to include individual isolation. Individual cleaners can now be shut down during operation as required.
Two different versions of the InduraClean IDC-4 type are available to cater to specific objectives. The Voith team designed the InduraClean IDC-4F (FourFlow) for large production capacities, especially for board and packaging papers.
The InduraClean IDC-4Q (FourQuality) is particularly suitable for specialty and graphic paper grades, as here the focus is on very high cleaning efficiency and quality.
The new product family also includes the widely used cleaner type HCL 5 – now referred to as InduraClean IDC-5. Unlike the InduraClean IDC-4, it consists of only one cleaner cone. This system is also available with different configurations and with the option of lightweight separation.
In addition to the installation of the new cleaner banks, Voith also offers the fast rebuild of existing banks. The company provides system planning and installation support as well as aids in commissioning and service for desired results. The new cleaners can also be integrated into banks from other manufacturers.
