June 21, 2018 – A multinip calender for UPM Nordland Papier is being supplied by Valmet to UPM's Dörpen Mill in Germany. The off-line calender that includes Valmet's machine control system is being designed to give the final high quality for the release and glassine paper grades after the grade conversion rebuild.
The machine's start-up is scheduled for the end of 2019.
The order is included in Valmet's second quarter of 2018 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The total value of an order of this type is typically around EUR 20-30 million.
Valmet's delivery for the new high-capacity calender will include a calender unwind, an OptiCalender Multinip calender, OptiDry air dryers and a wind-up station. the off-line calender will be equipped with Valmet DNA machine control system.
The multinip calender has 14 nips providing superior quality for the end product. Calendering is effective already in the first nips. Each nip is loaded with the same extreme nip load at high temperatures giving the end product low surface roughness, low oil absorption and high transparency.
The approximately 4,500-millimetre wide off-machine calender will produce release paper grades with a basis weight range of 48-120 grams per square metre. The design speed of the machine will be 1,300 metres per minute.
