Tornado F4 Contact Web Cleaning System
Combining Meech’s proven web cleaner manifold design with a state of the art compact extraction unit, the Tornado F4 sets a new benchmark for contact cleaning systems and is aimed at single sided cleaning for web widths up to 1200mm or 600mm for double sided cleaning.
In addition to excellent cleaning performance, the major benefit of the Tornado F4 is the new compact extraction unit. This unit makes the Tornado F4 easier to install than any other vacuum based contact cleaning system currently available, resulting in dramatically reduced installation costs.
Our in depth knowledge of fluid dynamics and static control has been incorporated into the Tornado F4 design. This enables us to provide effective solutions to problems such as:
- Dirty webs causing loss of profit and customer dissatisfaction
- Excessive downtime on printing presses
- Frequent blanket washing
- High reject rates in laminating or coating processes
- Unacceptable quality in pharmaceutical or food packaging
Applications of Tornado F4 Contact Web Cleaning System:
Meech Tornado solutions - trusted accross a diverse range of industries and applications - are at work around the world every day in many different sectors including; printing, laminating, coating, slitting & rewinding, textiles, corrugating, food & medical, packaging, paper making & converting, automotive and wood & furniture.
Tornado F4 systems are tailored to meet the specific requirements of each customer and application. A typical system will include:
- Web cleaning manifold – a well proven combination of uniquely designed face plates, brushes, and static eliminators to break up the web boundary layer and provide excellent contamination removal.
- Compact Extraction Unit - a filtration unit with variable vacuum power and filter condition monitoring, housed in a stainless steel cabinet and requiring a 13A single phase supply. The unit can be interfaced for remote on/off and filter condition monitorring.
- Filtration – as standard, rated to 1 micron.
- Silencing – as standard to 74dBA.
Advantages of Tornado F4 Contact Web Cleaning System:
Key advantages include better cleaning performance, no costly consumables, low noise levels and high energy efficiency. Compare our solutions to alternatives such as non-contact web cleaners or high maintenance “sticky” roller contact web cleaners and Tornado F4 wins time after time.
Proven in Practice
Tornado F4 web cleaners are used in a wide range of industries worldwide. So, whatever problem you face, the chances are that we have already solved it. If not we can carry out trials on your material at no cost to you.
Stainless Steel Faceplate
Unique machined stainless steel faceplates in ‘kissing’ contact with the web provide optimum web cleaning performance. By creating very high turbulence and simultaneously concentrating the vacuum, airflows on the web remove all but the tiniest particles - removal to 1 micron is standard.
Two Meech ionising systems go into each Tornado F4 manifold for static charge neutralisation. Ionising the air before the vacuum head breaks the electrostatic bond holding contaminants to the web to enable effective dust removal. Another ionising bar after cleaning ensures the web will not be re-contaminated.
Tornado F4 is supplied with universal mounting brackets for simple installation in any position in any machine. The highly adjustable brackets ensure that the cleaner is positioned for maximum web cleaning efficiency.
With no moving parts within the cleaning head, the Tornado F4 greatly simplifies maintenance procedures compared to alternative systems and optimises your productivity.
Rapid Return on Investment
No compressed air or costly consumables, together with improved product quality and longer intervals between machine shutdown for cleaning, all help the Tornado F4 to deliver a very rapid return on investment. So, as well as better performance and energy efficiency, the Tornado F4 is outstanding value for money.
