Valmet to supply a Valmet IQ Steam Profiler and CD Moisture Control to Ahlstrom-Munksjö in France

Oct 14, 2021

Valmet will supply a Valmet IQ Steam Profiler and associated cross direction moisture control to the Ahlstrom-Munksjö mill in Rottersac, in the South West of France.

The new profiling steambox, to be installed before the press section of PM5, will provide effective moisture profile management and improved drying performance for better product quality while reducing steam usage. Installation and startup are scheduled towards the end of August 2021.



 “Thanks to this project, we will be able to improve our draining capacity and better control our moisture profile. It will allow us to reduce our energy consumption, improve our profitability and finally reduce our environmental impact. Recently, Valmet did a similar project in another Ahsltrom-Munksjö mill and the results achieved make us very confident with the Valmet solution. Electromechanical actuators were a clear differentiator with competition and we trust we will obtain very good moisture profile,” says Benjamin Perea, Maintenance and Project Manager in Rottersac.


“With a wealth of experience in similar applications we know that this solution will provide the Rottersac mill with the best possible moisture profile control to improve production efficiency and paper quality,” says Boris Hosteins, Sales Manager, France, Automation Business Line, Valmet.
