At the cardboard production site of JSC Arkhangelsk PPM the installation of equipment for the key parts of the new cardboard-making machine No. 2 (BM-2) has begun since October 8, 2018: hydrobrushing pulper of the winder with suction pumps for broke and a hydraulic station of winder with the installation of hydraulic pipelines. This work will be carried out by LLC LS-Group (St. Petersburg) with the participation of Valmet Technologies Inc. specialists.
At the moment, approach flow equipment (pumps, screens, flumes, etc.) is being actively installed at level 0.00 and 6.00 m in the wet part of BM-2. Ventilation equipment is being installed and the building structures in the area of equipment installation for transfer of parent reels from wind up section to the winder is being strengthened.
The shutdown of the second machine will begin in January 2019 for the complete assembly of all parts of the modular-type structures of the new Valmet Technologies Inc unit, including the completion of the installation of the winder and transfer and packaging line, as well as the automatic control system of technological process of the DNA system.
The second machine will produce fluting and craftline. After a radical modernization, the unit will increase productivity to almost 300 thousand tons.
A member of the Council, Director of APPM, Vladimir Krupchak commented that improving the quality of cardboard and production flexibility were among the goals of the project. Each part of BM-2 will be designed to achieve certain properties of the final product, for example, durability. “We will also have a wide range of grammage (from 80 to 275 g / m2) and a wide range of formats for the final product (from 3 meters to 50 centimeters), provided with the latest cutting technology and roll transportation system,” said Vladimir Krupchak. At the same time, he said, the implementation of this project will make it possible to achieve significant savings by reducing costs and energy consumption.
