A Cleaning Device for Removing Unwanted Ceramic Debris Generated during Laminate Sizing

A cleaning device is disclosed here for removal of unwanted ceramic debris generated during the process of laminate sizing. Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 illustrate a top view and a bottom view of the cleaning device.

Fig. 3

As illustrated in fig. 3, the weighted stainless steel adjustable shutter consists of two skis that ride on top of inactive sides of substrate. This weighted stainless steel adjustable shutter increases the effectiveness of the cleaning device by maintaining air velocity needed for the ceramic debris to be evacuated out the exhaust line. Further, the air gap between the top of the substrate and slit in the weighted stainless steel adjustable shutter is approximately .062". The .062" air gap serves as a gate to block unwanted ceramic debris from escaping. The .062'' air gap also facilitates an in rush of ambient air to assist in the removal of the ceramic debris.
