Customer: Skjern Papirfabrik A/S
Description: Skjern Papirfabrik A/S chose Toscotec for the complete rebuild of its paper machine’s dryer section at Skjern mill, Denmark. PM1 has a wire width of 3,200 mm and produces core board from 90 to 450 gsm using 100% recycled fibres. Toscotec will supply a new frame for the entire dryer section and 19 TT SteelDryers, designed for an operating steam pressure of 10 barg, and equipped with bearing housings, steam fits and turbulence bars. The TT SteelDryers will replace most of the mill’s existing cast iron cans. The scope of supply also includes: a new tail blowing system in the press section and new mechanical drives for the entire paper machine. An interesting feature of this project is the supply of blowing doctors, which will improve air circulation in the pockets. The services package consists of onsite erection, supervision, commissioning and start-up assistance.
Details: The target of the rebuild is to increase the drying capacity by over 20%, without increasing the paper machine’s length, thanks to the advantages of TT SteelDryers and the higher steam pressure. The upgrade will also aim to improve the stability of the web run. The tail threading will increase the machine efficiency, thanks to the new tail blowing system in the press and new ropes system throughout the entire dryer section. As a result, Toscotec expects to boost both the efficiency and ease the run ability of the paper machine.
Start-up: The delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2019
