The main target of the rebuild was to increase the average speed of BM 2. To achieve that there was need to stabilize the web and to make the stabilization equipment more reliable, especially in the first drying groups.
Valmet Hirun Web Stabilizer* system was the most convincing option for Villa Lagarina, as it eliminates most of the physical vacuum dividers, replacing them with air blades.
Significantly reduced amount of web breaks and the subsequent production losses leading increased reliability of the board machine. The average production speed increased by more than 150 m/min, and maintenance shutdown intervals increased.
