Highest safety and dust reduction standards

Advantage WetDust

The Advantage™ WetDust™ system allows a cleaner, safer and environmentally friendlier tissue production through the use of the wet concept.

Prevents dust from migrating to the tissue machine hall

Improves the safety of the working environment

Eliminates risks of fire and plugging

Reduces machine downtime

For a safe working environment

Valmet Advantage WetDust system is designed to capture dust where it is created by encapsulating it in water, to contain it near the source and to prevent it from migrating to the tissue machine hall. 

The well-established concept makes use of a fully wet system, eliminating typical issues associated with “dry systems” (fires and plugging). 

The equipment provides a healthy, safe and comfortable working environment for tissue machine operators and minimizes manual cleaning, thus reducing machine downtime.

Advantage WetDust system with Air Curtain

An Advantage WetDust system can be made even more effective by the application of the Air Curtain. The dusty boundary layer produced during the creping is removed using an air barrier which helps to create a separate dust containment zone in the area. The Air Curtain is directed to the underside of the moving web, near the yankee pulper chute
