Like the original design, the Steamroller 2 isn’t diluted by outside air, which reduces efficiency and causes condensation and hairing problems. But unlike the original, the batt passes on top of a rotating drum in an overshot fashion. The moist air enters from above, where it is pulled down through the lint. Because there is no plenum, there is no place for pin trash to accumulate and most of it is carried away in the exhaust air. Users report cleaning takes less than half the time of the original.
The updated design also features aggressive doffing and compression rollers that do a superb job of handling wads, avoiding chokes and keeping the cotton flowing.
Loaded with other design touches, the Steamroller 2 delivers the highest levels of performance with easier than ever maintenance.
