  • Pulp Dryer Machines at Klabin Puma Unit breaks production records in September

    In September 2019, Klabin Puma Unit’s Pulp Dryer Machine 26 reached the production record of 1,408 ADt/d, its nominal capacity being 1,300 ADt/d. The machine was provided by Valmet and produces softwood and fluff pulp. In the same month Pulp Dryer Machine 25, which produces eucalyptus wood pulp, reached the production record of 3,710 ADt/d.

  • Project success is built on experts working together

    "The OKI pulp mill project was special in many ways," tells Johan Schotte, who was Valmet’s project director in the project.

  • From machine rebuild to new quality control system

    Valmet’s capability to cover the entire project scope sealed the deal when BillerudKorsnäs Karlsborg’s pulp mill was looking to replace their old quality control system. The package included a required machine rebuild and the installation of a new system for grammage and dry content control.
