Next Generation Felt Cleaning

Revolutionizing Batch Felt Cleaning in the Paper Industry: Introducing Restore® 3200

Alkaline Batch cleaning without hazardous ingredients

Introduction: The paper industry has long relied on sodium and potassium hydroxide chemistry to clean press fabrics, saponifying fatty esters that accumulate within felts. This traditional approach, handed down from our grandparents and great-grandparents, used lye to react with cooked fats and produce natural soap for various cleaning purposes. However, as the industry evolved, the need for safer and more efficient cleaning solutions became evident. Enter Restore® 3200, the next generation of batch felt cleaning that prioritizes safety without compromising performance. In this blog post, we explore the history, challenges, and breakthroughs in batch cleaning, leading to the introduction of E-Kleen® 3200.

The Evolution of Batch Felt Cleaning: Why do we batch clean felts? Fatty acids, esters, and other hydrophobic deposits, including pitch and black liquor carryover, find their way into the press section. These materials naturally separate from the water phase and adhere to the press fabrics, leading to a phenomenon known as “felt filling.” Traditional methods involved using concentrated sodium hydroxide solutions to elevate pH levels and initiate the saponification reaction. However, hazardous safety concerns limited the industry’s options until a breakthrough occurred a decade ago.

Introducing Restore® : A Safer Solution.   In 2014, TWI introduced Restore® 3100, a revolutionary DOT non-hazardous cleaning solution for the paper industry. This chemistry eliminated sodium and potassium hydroxide, achieving impressive results on high-speed linerboard and medium machines. The absence of hydroxide compounds made Restore® 3100 a significant step forward, but safety standards still labeled it as an Eye and Skin Category 1 corrosive hazard. Recognizing the need for further advancements, our company focused on developing alkaline alternatives in wet end foaming cleaners to create a truly safe and effective alkaline replacement chemistry.

Introducing Restore® 3200: Safety Beyond the Norm: Today, we proudly introduce E-Kleen® 3200, the next generation of batch felt cleaning that sets new safety standards in the paper industry. Not only is it caustic-free, but Restore® 3200 is also classified as an eye/skin irritant, surpassing safety expectations. This innovative cleaning solution ensures a clean and efficient press system while safeguarding the well-being of operators and the environment.
