Valmet will deliver key technologies and automation systems for Henan Longyuan Paper's new PM7 testliner line at their mill in Henan province in China. The order also includes a quality control system for the rebuild of their PM3 machine. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
"The good cooperation with Valmet started with the headbox installation project for PM6. Due to Valmet's many references from center press and automation controls in high-speed paper machines, we decided to go with Valmet again for the further expansion of production capacity. Valmet's intelligent technology operating with low carbon emissions fits perfectly together with Henan Longyan Paper's efficient and environmentally friendly concept, contributing to the local economy. We are looking forward to collaborating with Valmet again," says Yuzhou Wang, Vice General Manager, Henan Longyuan Paper.
Valmet's delivery includes a bottom dilution headbox and a Tri-nip press section and an automation package, including Valmet DNA machine controls (MCS), IQ Quality control system (QCS), dilution profiler for headbox, steam profiler, as well as Valmet services.
After the installation, PM7 will produce testliner products with a basis weight between 90-140 g/m2 at a design speed of 1,100 m/min.
