Jan. 24, 2017 - Valmet says it will supply three board machine rebuilds in North America in an effort to increase production and the use of recycled and non-bleached fibers.

The customers remain confidential.

The three deliveries will include modifications to two stock preparation systems and a modification to approach flow system, a number of modifications to the wet ends of the board machines, including a new headbox, and a rebuilt forming section, a new press section, a press section rebuild and modifications to two dryer sections, according to Valmet.

“Due to large installed base of paper and board machines in North America and their aging technology, the need for machine modernizations is quite constant,” said Jari Siitonen, Valmet sales director, adding that for modernization upgrades also help boost energy and resource efficiencies. “This is also linked to the growing trend of lightweighting in board production. Additionally our customers want to increase the use of recycled and non-bleached fibers.”

The start-ups of the rebuilt board machines are scheduled for 2017 and 2018.

Valmet is a global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries. Its technology offering includes pulp mills, tissue, board and paper production lines, as well as power plants for bioenergy production.
