Kadant Solutions Launches the VeriFlex™ Oscillation System for Roll Cleaning

AUBURN, Mass., April 3, 2024 – Kadant Solutions, a division of Kadant Inc. (NYSE: KAI), announced the launch of the VeriFlex™ oscillation system which provides compact and reliable oscillation for the VeriLite™ roll cleaner assembly. The VeriFlex oscillation system enhances roll cleaning effectiveness and extends blade life in a variety of industrial processing applications.

“Highly effective roll cleaning is critical to performance in industrial applications where installation space is often limited,” stated Marcelo Deboni, applications and product manager for Kadant Solutions. “From our extensive doctoring and roll cleaning experience, we know how much more effective roll cleaning can be when a blade is oscillated. The VeriFlex oscillation system reduces the space requirement of conventional oscillators by use of our proven pneumatic Varimatic™ 500 oscillator along with an innovative flex element design.”

Design simplicity is a key feature of the VeriFlex oscillation system, which uses low-pressure compressed air and eliminates the need for external controls. The addition of the VeriFlex oscillation system provides enhanced roll cleaning through oscillation, particularly in more challenging or critical roll cleaning applications.
