The arrangement provides for removal of unwanted paste particles from screened multilayer ceramic (MLC) green sheets without damaging areas. In operation, a single MLC green sheet is transported on an air track 1 into the brush cleaner station. Prior to entering this station, the MLC green sheet passes under a static elimination bar 2 to eliminate the retention of particles by electrostatic charges. The MLC green sheet is then transported through the brush cleaner station by utilizing the motion of the cleaning roller brushes 3. The velocity of the MLC green sheet through the station is 8"/sec. when the surface speed of the roller brushes, properly adjusted for cleaning, is set at 50"/sec.
