The drying machine 1 at OKI, a project carried out by APP with technology supplied by Valmet, has achieved a new production world record in April 2018, with a total capacity in a single machine of 4,348 air dried tonnes per day.

OKI has two machines of 10.6 m wide, each being the widest and highest capacity built in the world, and the new record places the company in the vanguard of pulp drying technology, exceeding by 500 ADt/d the second place of any other machine in the world.

This is an outstanding result from the joint work of Valmet and APP.
