Celebration of the hundredth LineSprint cleaner at Fastpap Oy

Fastpap has received an order for hundredth LineSprint roll cleaner. LineSprint was developped by Fastpap in 2006 and has been a success ever since. Now after ca. 16 years, already 100 LineSprints are sold around the world.

The first LineSprints were delivered to paper machine’s coater backing roll cleaning. Soon it was discovered that LineSprint is capable to clean any roll surfaces in a paper machine, like calander rolls, pope roller even drying cylinders.

The jubilee LineSprint will be delivered to paper machine in China, it is 8m wide and will clean coater backing roll. It represents the latest roll cleaning technology with a capability of intelligent ”cleaning on production” method. Automatic online cleaning decreases web breaks and, by replacing manual cleaning, it increases work safety. Clean roll surfaces also helps to achieve consistent and flawless end-product quality.

Unique cleaning method

Fastpap LineSprint cleans the roll surface efficiently but gently with a rotating brush. An adjustable water jet can be used to enhance the cleaning. Such a small amount of water is used that it does not mark the web or alter its moisture profile.

It is possible to clean the whole width of the roll or only a certain part of it. All impurities detached from the roll surface, and any water used while cleaning, are vacuumed up and removed from the process. Efficient air doctors ensure surface dryness.

Individual solution guarantees optimal efficiency

Fastpap LineSprint is a standardized product which is always individually adapted to answer customer needs. For instance, the cleaning tool is selected according to the material and the specific requirements of the surface to be cleaned. Additionally, the cleaning and moving speeds of LineSprint are programmable.

An optional Roll Cleanliness Monitoring system based on machine vision enables roll surface cleanliness to be controlled during production, and the roll to be given a quick clean, when needed.
