Customer case:

A long-term agreement ensures process and production improvement at Star Paper

May 3, 2023

Partnering with Valmet through a long-term agreement allows Star Paper to focus on process and production improvement rather than concerns about a worn component. In addition, the agreement ensures prompt delivery times and regular visits of screen basket experts to evaluate basket performance during operation.

Valmet Screen Baskets NL for board and paper production

Star Paper Mills Limited in India signed a three-year agreement with Valmet to provide the supply and service of Valmet Screen Baskets. This is the third extension of the agreement and the renewed agreement includes the supply of ten Valmet Screen Baskets NL for DC 8 screens and six Valmet Screen Baskets NL for FS 40 screens.

The durable design of the Valmet Screen Basket extends more lifetime of screen baskets which helps to reduce screening costs and, eventually, the total cost of ownership.

Our target is to improve the competitiveness of our screening system by reducing screening costs and continuously enhancing screening efficiency. We have achieved tangible results since the first agreement with Valmet in 2015, achieving more lifetime of screen baskets. Longer lifetime leads to higher cost savings."

We are delighted to continue the cooperation with Star Paper. The highly wear resistant coating of the Valmet Screen Basket NL increases the uptime of the screen and reduces the frequency of basket changes and the productivity losses associated with the changes.”
