Did you know the world’s fastest paper and board machines are equipped with Valmet recycled fiber lines?
Producing high-quality board and paper grades with low-quality raw materials like old corrugated containers (OCC) and mixed paper (MXP) places high demands on recycled fiber processes. Process optimization begins with the specification of the end product’s desired properties. This guides the selection of the stock preparation concept, which must be robust and flexible while meeting the full range of productivity and environmental demands. With Valmet’s experts, you can optimize the entire recycled fiber line to produce maximum quality stock while improving efficiency with very high safety standards.
Whether you’re looking for a totally new recycled fiber line or a partial rebuild, Valmet secures the production of a high-quality end product with good strength properties. The customized process design enables the optimization of final stock quality, raw material yield, and most importantly, the maximization of your investment by minimizing operating costs.
Typically recycled fiber line designs include low-quality mixed paper, expensive clean raw materials, or a mixture of both. Valmet's OCC equipment and lines maximize raw material yield and fiber quality potential while minimizing fiber loss, investment, and operating costs. Along with standalone equipment sales, Valmet also provides full-scope OCC lines for your specific needs. Our OCC portfolio includes drum and vertical pulping, screening, cleaning, thickening equipment, dispersing, and refining.
The world’s most comprehensive testing, piloting and laboratory services are available at the Valmet Fiber Technology Center in Inkeroinen, Finland. The pilot facility provides a complete testing environment for mechanical pulping, recycled fiber, stock preparation and pulp drying. Valmet’s professional team has run hundreds of customer trials.
The production of high-quality printing papers, newsprint and tissue from recycled fiber is challenging and mills need to handle more furnish variability, as paper qualities get mixed and contaminated with non-fiber materials.
