Cleaning of machinery
at working area:
For this new concept
JACOBI developed the cleaner type KWE 700. This unit
runs on the floor and is connected directly with the
machine with a guide rail. This brings the blowing nozzles
very close to drafting equipment, cutters and spindles,
in order to keep this area clean from fiber fly and
waste. Two floor suction nozzles clean the operators
corridor. The small design of the unit leaves enough
space for the operators.
Cleaning of side creel and spinning room:
To clean the side creel including thread guide and thread
brakes we use our weIl proven cleaner type KWE 600.
This conventional unit drives over the Chenille machine
and creel. Depending on the machinery layout it is possible
to clean up to five machines with good results. On the
back of the machines the unit blows on the drive motors
of the cutters, keeping the ventilating covers clean.
The additional cooling results in longer running time
of the motors. Another two floor suction nozzles clean
the floor between two machines and creels.
Automatic waste discharge and filter cleaning:
It is possible to connect up to twelve cleaners to one
suction unit in order to discharge automatically the
collected waste from the filter boxes and to collect
it in a central box.
During suction the filters are blown with compressed
air to detach the heavy, oil containing material from
the filter surface. The maintenance intervals for the
filter units increase considerably. Of course, it is
possible to connect the central waste collecting box
with a vacuum discharge system, further reducing routine
