A new industrial vacuum cleaning system for narrow web processes is said to combines the power of static neutralization with high vacuum, high volume and high velocity. Called the V-Force 30 and developed by Simco-Ion, Hatfield, Pa., the complete system includes a non-contact cleaning hood with active static neutralizing bars, a ducting kit, and a self-contained air-control system (ACS). It can be easily installed onto the open web in most narrow web presses and machinery, including those running thin films.
V-Force 30’s compact clam-shell hood design incorporates an optimized air management chamber that balances a high velocity air agitation curtain with dual vacuum slots, providing the highest efficiency clean. The hood also incorporates shockless static bars to quickly neutralize and break the bond between charged particulates and the running web at up to 2000 ft/min. 
The ACS is an all-in-one blow-off, vacuum, and collector support cabinet that connects to the hood through an integrated hose design. The ACS’s stainless steel enclosure incorporates enhanced acoustic isolation resulting in extremely quiet operation. Most importantly, the ACS incorporates a non-regenerative blower design with dedicated turbines and a filtered fresh air intake providing powerful performance without the use of costly compressed air. The quad turbine vacuum source is strategically designed so that there is no degradation of vacuum suction as each filter accumulates particles. Its flexible design and small footprint makes the V-Force 30 system the most efficient cleaning system for any demanding application.
