The investment to rebuild PM10 improves paper formation and enhances product quality and improves energy efficiency. The rebuild will reduce water consumption and contribute to energy savings.

 

Vaahto Pulp & Paper Machinery was contracted to rebuild PM10 in April 2010. The rebuild schedule was ambitious, but the project proceeded ahead of plan. The delivery included a new Crescent former, headbox and reel plus fully overhauled short circulation and press section. The runnability and speed on the paper machine and converting lines improved clearly resulting in increased efficiency.
