Oct. 16, 2017 - Kadant Lamort SAS, a subsidiary of Kadant Inc., has released the BoosTEK Performance Pack for screening applications in OCC recycling, stock preparation, and pulp mills.

According to the company, the BoosTEK Performance Pack utilizes system pressure to amplify the breakdown of stock mats that form on, and ultimately block, the screen cylinder, adding that the proprietary technology improves the performance of the screen resulting in increased capacity, improved contaminant collection, and higher yield of clean pulp fibre.
 
“Significant savings make this a cost-effective upgrade with a compelling return on investment,” commented Jordi Goma, mill manager at Spanish tissue paper manufacturer Goma-Camps. “We have achieved up to a 40% reduction in energy consumption or up to a 65% gain in fiber yield depending on the operational focus.”
 
Installed on either the accept or the reject line of the screen, the gains can be both qualitative and quantitative, says Kadant. The BoosTEK Performance Pack’s adaptive and intelligent technology reacts to the needs of the upstream screen, optimizing the running conditions of the stock flow to maximize performance and output, it adds. The system also provides actionable feedback to allow operators the ability to fine-tune the device for the desired results.
