BTG has introduced its PROcleanTM Yankee Dryer refreshment blade into the tissue market. The company said the blade is made of advanced composite material and is designed to quickly and safely clean hard organic coating from the Yankee surface and can be used in any sheet-off condition including at speed and higher temperatures.

It said: “Benefits reported include significantly reduced vibration, reduced edge build up, and less web break and sheet defects.

“Used regularly as part of a Yankee surface management programme it is an effective tool against Yankee chatter and will extend regrind intervals, especially when used with the complimentary VigilancePROTM Yankee performance monitoring and PROfileTM blade holder service solutions.”

It added that PROcleanTM can be used on any blade holder without modification, without tools and requires only limited supervision.
