VCL 5 - Venti-Cleaner


The VCL 5 system ensures that the knitting machine remains absolutely clean during the production process. The VCL 5 system increases knitting machine efficiency because it prevents the build-up of contamination which might otherwise stop the machine.

Main features

  • Flexible fan system with a variable radius of action
  • Yarn paths on the knitting machine are kept clear of lint deposits so all critical spots and knitting elements remain clean
  • Reduced knitting faults and machine stoppages
  • No compressed air required for operation
