<< Back to Breaking News

BillerudKorsnäs has selected AFT (Aikawa Fiber Technologies) to supply a compact POM System for all three layers of their new 550,000 tonnes per year board machine at the Gruvön mill in Sweden.

According to Timo Koivisto , Vice President, Process and Equipment Solutions for AFT, “Compact and highly efficient, POM® paper machine wet end and headbox screening will deliver superior cleanliness in a compact package. The simple POM System, with its small footprint, has become the de facto alternative to traditional complex approach flow, eliminating capital and high operating costs.”

The order includes a complete POM System for all three layers and headbox screening, including :
• 3 - POMix stock processors
• 9 - POMp degassers
• 3 - POMLock drop legs
• 11- MaxFlow Headbox screens
• Cascade cleaning system, process pumps and auxiliaries plus associated basic engineering.

The system will come on stream in early 2019, coinciding with the start-up of BillerudKorsnäs’ new board machine.

The BillerudKorsnäs’ board machine at the Gruvön site is the company’s largest investment ever, one of the largest in Sweden in recent years. The investment of SEK 5.7 billion includes the construction of the new board machine at the Gruvön site and rebuilds in the existing pulp mill. The board machine’s annual capacity of 550,000 tonnes will make it one of the largest of its kind in the world. The machine will produce liquid packaging board, cartonboard, food service board and liner.
