Like better cleaning & life for your machine clothing?
Looking to reduce your shower water usage?
Replacing worn nozzles with Gem (Sapphire or Ruby) nozzles net amazing results
Paper Trade Associates are now offering Gem Insert shower nozzles. Gem Nozzles wear 5 to 10 times longer than common stainless ones. Believe it or not, when a wire cleaning shower on a 200” wide paper machine with .040” nozzles wears to .042” the shower will use almost 4 extra GPM or 1.9 million gallons per year! Other water savings from using Sapphires is due to the Improved Jet integrity which allows showers to be operated at reduced shower pressure to get the same cleaning. This can lead to improved clothing life as well. Worn nozzles in the above shower cost a mill approximately $6,300/year in water, energy and sewer!
Gem Insert Nozzles can replace most common Jet Style nozzles.
