PMP (Paper Machinery Producer) is continuing an active support of the Jiangsu Changfeng Paper’s development by implementing State-of-the-Art technology. After a successful PM#3 rebuild including (3) new Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headboxes, an Intelli-Press® with an Intelli-Nip® Shoe Press and a new Intelli-Sizer® Metering Size Press in 2014, PMP has been awarded the contract again.
This time the project is to complete a PM#2 Press Section rebuild including another new Intelli-Nip® Shoe Press.
Intelli-Nip® Shoe Press technology is great hybrid of energy saving solution & impressive paper properties and is recently a desired solution worldwide. At present, PMP is executing 4 projects that include its shoe press solution: in USA, Mexico, Columbia and China.
This time project goals for JCP are focused on increasing the PMs capacity, by increasing the operating speed from 700 to 850 mpm. Another target is to significantly improve quality parameters of the final product as well as machine runnability.
PM#2 of reel trim 4860 mm produces 2-ply fluting grades. The shoe press technology is going to play a key role in the final success, bringing ultra-high dryness (expected dryness after press 50%). It is important to mention that 1% more dryness after press brings 4% steam saving in the dryer section. The shoe press technology enables significant improvement of paper properties (especially bulk & bursting strength) and significantly supports runnability bringing extra production days.
PMP’s scope of delivery includes the Intelli-Nip® Shoe Module (design nip load 1050 kN/m), a plain mating roll of dia 1460 mm, PM auxiliaries systems such as hydraulic unit for the Shoe Press, PM controls & panels and mechanical drives. Structural machine components will be designed for a design speed of 900 m/min. PMP will also be responsible for on-site services, including on-site erection, start-up supervision and training services.
The delivery is scheduled for the beginning of 2017, followed by erection at site and start-up.
