The mechanical steam separator can divert up to 50% of the generated steam from the fiber flow for recycling in the pre-steaming bin.
Arne Asplund Mechanical Pulping Award 2016
Regarded as the "Nobel Prize" in the field of mechanical pulping, the Arne Asplund Mechanical Pulping Award was established in 1985 to commemorate Dr. Asplund’s contribution to the pulp and paper industry worldwide.
Valmet emphasizes occupational safety with Chipper knife changing device.
Thorough training, rapid start-up
When a new continuous cooking plant was installed at the SCA Obbola mill in Sweden, simulator training was an important part of the project. It made a very rapid start-up possible.
Maximum equipment performance through modular service solutions
Modular service solutions offer pulp and papermakers clearer choices for the maintenance of all rolls and equipment for fiber production.
CMPC Guaíba pulp mill becomes totally odorless
CMPC Riograndense Ltda’s Guaíba pulp mill in Brazil no longer emits any hazardous or malodorous gases into the environment. They are efficiently controlled and destroyed by Valmet’s non-condensable gas (NCG) treatment system – probably the most comprehensive one in the world.
Remote services and analytics add to Burgo mill results
A Valmet bleach plant optimization project at Burgo’s Ardennes kraft pulp mill in Belgium achieved the customer’s expectations and a good ROI. However, this was not the end of the task to maintain and improve the results, as the control performance has actually improved under the watchful, remote surveillance of Valmet engineers.
