Pump and washing system with PulseWash®. Great pump & washing solutions from
AkeBoose Graphic Products for harsh
Forget about stationary fibers and dried ink on the screen roller when printing tissue!
The new Pump and Washing system with PulseWash® from AkeBoose Graphics Products eliminates the problem through a Quick Wash sequence 3 - 4 times per shift.
Quick wash & Go in 10 minutes! Saving hours for more beneficial work than cleaning!
The "Quick Wash” program evacuates the ink and rinses the inside of your ink chamber, the outside of the sealing blade and the screen roller with pure water or water with detergent during a normal roll change.
PulseWash® takes the ink residue away!
The PulseWash® sequence refers to the system's unique feature of using wave-like motions toward the end of the washing cycle to remove ink residue in the bottom of the chamber.
Screen roller washing included! Nozzle rinse the screen roller during the wash cycles.
The NOVA chamber is carrying external spray nozzles that keep the screen roller wet and clean during the washing cycle.
The Full Wash program can be used for difficult applications like switching from intensive blue to bright yellow and will take about 20 minutes.
In case time is critical, a spare chamber could reduce the total changeover time to just a few minutes.
For harsh environmental conditions
The new Pump- and Washing system has been developed by the Swedish engineering company AkeBoose Graphic Products, to make cleaning of the ink chamber and screen roller easier in tough flexo applications like printing tissue and corrugated board.
Designed for waterborne inks
The Pump & Washing system is especially designed for NOVA chamber systems and waterborne inks. The basic functions are a unique combination of an automated ink pumping system, with controlled ink supply and return, and an efficient PLC controlled washing system with touch screen display, which automatically switches the vessel when changing from ink to water/detergent.
The system is very easy to operate and reduces the consumption of rinsing and washing liquids.
Metse Tissue in Pauliström, Sweden was the first customer installing two NOVA chamber systems with PulseWash®. Their targets were clearly defined in the contract, including a demand for a maximum downtime of 5 hours per month for the two units.
"We’ve got what we wanted” summarizes Håkan Rickard, Technology & Development manager at Metse Tissue. "A Quick Wash sequence and blade change takes no longer than an ordinary roll change. Both the NOVA chamber - and the PulseWash system are very good and easy to handle. The equipment is innovative, well-conceived and well-made”, concludes Håkan Rickard.
