MM Kolicevo BM 3: Runnability and efficiency improved with coater section rebuild
All the targets for the coater section rebuild project were achieved at the Mayr-Melnhof Kolicevo mill in Slovenia. Runnability and efficiency were improved. A multilayer curtain coating station and a blade coating station started up at the board machine 3 (BM 3) after a very short shutdown period in the summer of 2015. A supply system for the two curtain coating layers was also installed. Before the rebuild decision was made, the coating concept, coating color chemistry, and performance were tested at Valmet's Paper Technology Center in Finland.
