Customer: Alas Dorada
Start-up: by the end of 2017
Production rate: the main target for the rebuild is to raise production capacity by increasing press dryness, and enable improved paper quality as a second stage. This will be achieved by installation of an Advantage ViscoNip press combined with an Advantage ReDry web heater.
Characteristics: Valmet’s delivery for the machine rebuild includes a replacement of a current suction press roll with an Advantage ViscoNip press for increased production, improved product quality and decreased energy consumption. A new Advantage ReDry web heater will further enhance the targets by utilizing exhaust air and humidity from the hood, to heat the web and thereby increase post pressure consistency.
