The name Kadant rings a bell for many, especially within the paper industry. Built upon the well-regarded Lodding and Vickery brands, Kadant Solutions is a leading supplier of roll cleaning blades (doctor blades for those from the pulp and paper market), roll cleaning blade holders, and roll cleaning systems for industrial processes. Roll cleaners are used to remove stock accumulations, water, pitch, and filler buildup.
In addition to rolling cleaning and related components, Kadant Solutions also offers water cleaning and filtration products that are used to optimize performance of forming and press fabrics and the filter contaminants from process water. The cleaning and filtration products include shower systems, nozzles, drainage structures, and high-pressure fabric cleaners among other products. Most recently, Kadant launched its water and energy audit service to help identify opportunities for water usage reduction and energy savings.
Kadant Solutions, a division of Kadant Inc. (NYSE:KAI), is headquartered in Auburn, Massachusetts, USA about 45 miles outside of Boston. Fun fact: Robert Goddard launched the first liquid-fueled rocket from a hill in Auburn and is considered the father of modern rocketry.
