Web Cleaning

Contamination Analysis Rollers

The majority of contamination on any wound reel is on the edges, where slitting dust will gather. On the bottom side contamination from storage (such as wooden pallets) will be visible, while the top surface will harbour airborne contamination.

Use Contamination Analysis Rollers,  smoothly applied to any flat surface, removing any loose, dry contamination. The roller is then cleaned on the Adhesive Pad which traps the contamination, leaving the roller clean for the next surface.

Clean the edge of each roll of material with a Contamination Analysis Roller before starting the line, and don't forget to examine the pad to understand the sources of your contaminants.
