ShiveClean at APP leads to excellent refiner performance

When Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) decided to install a new BCTMP (bleached chemi-thermomechanical pulp) line at its Guangxi Jingui pulp and paper mill, it turned to Valmet. Since its start-up in mid-2013, the capacity of the line’s refiners and the lifetimes of their segments have reached remarkably high levels, and their energy consumption has been low

These segment patterns are helping APP Guangxi Jingui achieve the longest segment lifetime in China: more than 3,000 hours on several occasions, with a record of 3,200 hours.
