In May 2016, Kuban Papir, Russia signed a contract with PMP for TM#1 wet-end rebuild. TM#1 will be supplied with state-of-the-art new technological items provided by PMP. The project driving force is a modern technology that ensures energy savings solutions following global trends. Additionally, excellent tissue quality is expected.
The TM of reel trim 2750 mm produces tissue with basis weight range at the reel from 15 to 30 gsm and maximum operating speed of 1000 mpm. As an existing headbox is not efficient enough, a main goal of the project is to ensure higher efficiency of production through applying a modern new Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox. Generally, project goals are focused on TM speed-up to 1500 mpm, capacity increase and tissue quality improvement.
PMP has been supporting Kuban Papir development since 2009 through deliveries of core technological items. In 2009 Intelli-Reel® was implemented. This time PMP’s scope of delivery includes a single layer Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox of 2850 mm ponside. To ensure proper TM operation PMP will deliver also design engineering for silo and flume reworks. PMP will support Kuban Papir during entire time of the project by executing mill assembly & start-up supervision and operator’s trainings. The start-up is scheduled for the beginning of 2017.
