Drying wire conditioning

The problem:
Particularly in the case of packaging paper machines using waste paper, sticky impurities on the drying wires, i.e. stickies, lead to breaks, holes and spots in the paper.
On-line treatment of drying wires by means of on-line chemical application directly in the drying section was first introduced by API in 1994.

Our results:

  • Higher machine availability due to less breaks and cleaning shutdowns.
  • Increased quality due to less spots and holes.
  • Easy to use with spray-bar.
  • Customized applications tailored to your needs.
  • Highest safety thanks to state-of-the-art application technology.
  • Excellent price-performance.
  • Compliance with the relevant standards (BfR, FDA, BPR, Blue Angel, Nordic Swan, etc.).


  • APICLEAN product series.
  • Surface-active chemicals based on natural and mineral oils and silicone-derivatives.

Our application experts will be glad to advise you in the selection of suitable technologies.
