Our evaluation showed that MultiSimplex from Metso is the best solution for us”, says Anders Gannå, Process Engineer, SCA Ortviken. He continues: “Based on the results from our previous MultiSimplex installations, we expect to save 5-10 % in specific energy consumption and reduce fiber property variations by 50 % by using this system.”
