As a leading technology expert in pulping and fiber we have extensive expertise and experience. This knowledge is incorporated in all our products, giving us exceptional insight into all aspects of upgrading processes and machinery. Let as help you to raise production efficiency, lower your maintenance costs and move your production quality to a new level.
To maintain the competitiveness of your core processes and to develop them throughout the lifecycle. We provide a wide range of solutions for upgrading and enhancing woodhandling, cooking and fiberline, white liquor, recovery boiler, evaporation, pulp drying and baling processes and machinery. The scope is always based on your specific needs and the solutions are tailored to maximize the performance of equipment and processes.
With small or mid-size investments production bottlenecks can be opened or extends the original process design limitations. Typical process upgrade building blocks are design engineering, new components, rebuild and upgrades and process controls and efficient commissioning and start-up service. By upgrading and reuse an existing machine instead of buying a completely new you are a little friendlier to the enviroment.
Capacity increases of up to 40% are common, and our rebuilds are typically planned and carried out in a very short time frame. Valmet has developed long-standing relationships with pulp mills all over the globe. We have upgraded more than 200 chemical recovery boilers, with excellent results.
