Water Dam Water Fall


FirstCLEAR™ helps every papermaker fight to create the perfect conditions to operate efficiently.  When raw water treatment is less than perfect, slime deposits form in the process and on critical parts of the paper machine robbing efficiency and creating off spec paper.  FirstCLEAR is an essential part to controlling microbial impact in every drop of raw water going to the papermaking process.
