XTREME™ Reverse Cleaner

Removes wax, Styrofoam®, hot melt glues, latex, grease, and other low-density materials.

The XTREME Reverse Cleaner uses the latest reverse cleaning technology to remove lightweight debris from all types of pulp and paper stock. Long residence times within a small diameter maximize the separation of small contaminants that are close to the specific gravity of the fiber. Feed consistencies are the same as in conventional lightweight cleaning systems.


A complete XTREME Cleaning System consists of two stages — primary stage XTREME Reverse Cleaners tailed by secondary stage XX-Clone Through-Flow Cleaners. Fed with the lean rejects from the XTREME Cleaners, the XX-Clones maximize removal efficiency with minimal pressure drop and fiber loss. The total power consumption of such a system is competitive with more conventional series through-flow cleaners, yet efficiently removes more wax, lightweight hot melts, and stickies.
