Kadant Solutions Announces the New M-clean™ ULTRA System

AUBURN, Mass., August 4, 2020 – Kadant Solutions, a division of Kadant Inc. (NYSE: KAI), announces the addition of the M-clean ULTRA system to its M-clean product line. Originally launched in 2019 in Europe, the new M-Clean ULTRA system is now available in the United States.

The M-clean system is a modular cleaning system for fabrics, belts, and rolls in process industries. The modular design provides flexibility allowing the M-clean system to be supplied as a complete new system or retrofit existing installations with its modular components. The three customizable M-clean systems available are M-clean PRO, M-clean BRUSH, and the new M-clean ULTRA. The M-clean ULTRA works with lower water pressure and a simplified pumping and control system. The unit is designed for continuous operation; however, some applications require only intermittent use.

According to Marcelo DeBoni, product manager at Kadant Solutions, “The M-clean ULTRA system builds on the success of M-clean PRO with a simpler, more streamlined design to allow for narrow or tight installation positions such as forming fabric cleaning applications.”
