Kadant Black Clawson awarded de-ink line expansion for Papel San Francisco

November 20, 2019  By P&PC Staff

Kadant Black Clawson, a subsidiary of Kadant, has received an order from Papel San Francisco to supply a complete stock preparation and de-inking line for its new tissue production line at its Mexicali, Mexico facility.

Kadant Black Clawson is a fibre processing and recycling equipment supplier that designs, manufactures and services equipment used in virgin and recycled paper stock preparation and paper machine approach-flow applications.

As part of this expansion project, Papel San Francisco required a sustainable, highly flexible solution with the ability to expand production while maintaining the high quality of the finished product. Additionally, this system needed to process what is anticipated to be increased levels of furnish contamination from the market going forward.


“The high efficiency solution from Kadant will support our growing production goals and enable us to get the very best in an increasingly challenging market environment,” says Dario Palma, director of operations at Papel San Francisco.

The mill concluded Kadant Black Clawson’s Foundations fibre processing solution, which includes end-to-end recycling and de-inking fibre processing, was the preferred solution to meet its performance targets.

Papel San Francisco has provided the consumer and commercial markets with personal care paper products for more than 35 years. The company is committed to environmental sustainability, producing products made with the least amount of natural resources possible, and employing energy-saving production processes.

Kadant Black Clawson’s fibre processing solution was developed with consideration of the unique demands of the application and the goal for creating a more sustainable, profitable process. It includes the robust Heli-Drum pulping and de-trashing system as well as coarse, fine, and approach flow screening. The company is also supplying its MAK-C flotation cell and cleaning systems.

The line is scheduled to be up and running in September 2020.
