AFT is pleased to announce three new advanced POM systems to be delivered for Klabin Puma II Project PM28, a multi-ply containerboard application in Brazil, South America. The POM system will help to provide superior cleanliness and fast response to grade changes on a new flex-board machine with multiple and frequent changes planned.
The new wet end includes a complete POM approach flow system for three plies with a capacity of 1,700 TPD, including POMix stock processors, POMp degassers, POMLock drop legs, basic engineering and mill site services.
Compared to traditional systems with silos and tanks, the compact POM system runs efficiently with much lower water volume, less energy in a compact space. This enhances environmental performance by using less water and providing fast grade changes, process stability and sheet cleanliness.
“AFT is proud to have been selected to participate in this project.” says Orlando Matteoni, Director of AFT do Brazil. “We are committed to delivering innovative technologies for the South American market that help our mills in reaching their sustainability goals.”
