Introduction
A World of Difference in Your Document Printing & Processing Center
PureClean 5.0.2 Web-Sweep systems utilize the "Source Capture" cleaning method to effectively scrub
and clean paper dust, paper chad and static from continuous webs before feeding into your high speed
digital printer.
PureClean 5.0.2 Web-Sweep systems come with universal adjustable support brackets to mount the
Web-Sweep cleaning heads directly onto any unwinder, rewinder or fan-fold feeder so that the web is
clean at the closest point before feeding the printer. The PureClean filtering unit is normally
positioned next to unwinder, rewinder or fan-fold feeder. No additional space between unwinder,
rewinder or fan-fold feeder and printer is need to accommodate the PureClean5.0.2 Web-Sweep.
PureClean 5.0.2 Web-Sweep systems are unique in the way they “Source Capture” contaminants from
the web, since they do not use perpendicular vacuuming that attempts to lift off paper dust and chad
from the web. This way of vacuuming, creates excessive friction on the web causing errors and
malfunctions with printers and often need a power assist/urge unit whereas the PureClean 5.0.2
Web-Sweep does not require one.
PureClean 5.0.2 Web-Sweep systems use our unique “cross-lateral” blasting technology. The high
velocity air is drawn in laterally from one end of the Web-Sweep head, blasting across both sides of
the web without added tension to the web. Paper dust and paper chad vacuumed from the opposite
end and captured into the multi-stage filters of the PureClean unit with 99% efficiency.
The continuous web passes through the Web-Sweep head that incorporates three upper and four
lower agitator brushes. The adjustable upper and opposing lower brushes are offset from each other,
effectively scrubbing the web without adding excessive tension on the web. Electronic anti-static bars
are built inside and outside the Web-Sweep head assist in effective cleaning of the web and for
neutralizing the web prior to feeding the printer.
PureClean5.0.2 Web-Sweep Systems provide neutralized cleaner paper for optimum throughput,
print quality and at the same time extends the life of consumables and wear & tear of the printers.

System Preventative Maintenance
PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE OF WEB-SWEEP HEAD
4.1
Monthly maintenance to the Web-Sweep head should be performed by removing
accumulation of paper dust and chad on electronic static elimination bars and
from agitator brushes. Pivot the Web-Sweep head open to get access to static
eliminator bar and brushes. The hydraulic damper on the end of the Web-Sweep head
can be popped off for easier access. A cleaning brush with nylon bristle should be used
to keep the ionizing pins of the bar clean. Periodic use of the brush will prevent deposits
from accumulating on the pins. The ionizing pins must remain sharp for optimum
operation. A vacuum cleaner should be used to vacuum the brushes and and any
accumulation of paper dust and chad within the Web-Sweep head.
4.2
Replace filters according to filter replacement schedule or customized schedule for your
particular print center production.
CAUTION: Points are sharp on the anti-static bars and may cause injury.
CAUTION: Anti-static bars are shockless only when grounded properly.
MONTHLY PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE OF WEB-SWEEP HEAD
4.3
Check to see if anti-static bars are working properly by using a non contact AC voltage
tester that can be bought at Home Depot, Sears, Etc. The voltage tester will indicate
that the anti-static bars are emitting sufficient positive & negative ions to effectively
neutralize the web. The tester should flash or sound when held within 6 to 8 inches of
the electronic anti-static bar.
CAUTION: Turn off and unplug PureClean System Before Servicing.
4.5
Inspect high voltage shield cable connection and make sure ground wire is tightly
secured
4.6
Check Web-Sweep Head alignment for proper inclination for optimum direct paper

5.7
ADJUSTING BRUSHES FOR OPTIMUM SCRUBBING OF THE WEB
• Adjustments should be made by qualified personnel
5.7.1 Web-Sweep brushes are pre-adjusted at the factory for proper distance between the
upper and lower brushes for maximum scrubbing of the web. However, adjustments
may need to be made caused by normal brush wear. A manual test for drag and a
visual inspection for brush wear need to be performed from time to time to ensure
optimum Web-Sweep performance.
5.7.2 The test should be performed using your widest and heaviest continuous forms between
splicing of continuous form or when in the standby mode. The PureClean 5.0.2
Web-Sweep should be turned on. Thread the test continuous form through the WebSweep head, grip the middle of the form at the exit side of the Web-Sweep head.
Slowly pull on the continuous forms evenly to feel the drag on the web. If you feel a
medium pressure drag on the web, no adjustments need to be done. However,
adjustments are necessary if there is virtually no drag , excessive drag or if uneven
pressure or drag is felt on the form as you pull the form through the Web-Sweep head.
5.7.3 Low drag is found on the web? All adjustment is performed with the top four allen
screws locate on the top side of the Web-Sweep head. Turn counter clockwise all four
screws in 1/2 or 1 turn increments until desired drag on the web is achieved. This
reduces the space between the upper and lower plates and create more scrubbing
power. It is important to turn all screws evenly in order to maintain the upper
brushes square with the lower brushes.
5.7.4 High drag is found on the web? . Turn clockwise all four screws in 1/2 or 1 turn
increments until desired drag on the web is achieved. This increases the space
between the upper and the lower brushes, thereby reducing drag. It is important to
turn screws all evenly in order to maintain the upper brushes square with the lower
brushes.
5.7.5 Uneven pressure is felt on the web? This indicates that the upper and lower plates
are not square or level. The upper plate can be adjusted up or down by turning the
two allen screws on both ends to increase or reduce drag. If necessary the top plate
can be zeroed out by turning clockwise all for screws 2 -3 revolutions at a time until
they are bottomed out. Then turn each of the four screw 2-3 revolutions at a time
counter clockwise, test drag and continue in 1 revolution increments until desired
tension is achieved.
