Customer: Cartiera Pirinoli
Production: Carton board
Description: Italian carton board manufacturer Cartiera Pirinoli selected Toscotec for the rebuild of the entire press section of PM1 at its Roccavione site in Northern Italy.
Details: In order to ensure the highest operation flexibility across a wide range of basis weights, Toscotec will supply both a first nip composed of an upper plain press and a lower suction press, and a second nip featuring Voith NipcoFlex shoe press designed for a maximum nip load of 1,600 kN/m. The scope also includes a fully automatic tail feeding system, felt runs, showers, rolls, doctors, as well as guide and stretcher systems.
The rebuild is set to significantly increase the productivity of PM1. The replacement of lower efficiency press rolls with a high performance first nip and a NipcoFlex will ensure a drastic reduction of PM1’s energy consumptions and paper breaks and increase post-press dryness.
Start up: The project is planned for the second half of 2023.
