Fripa Miltenberg invests in new tissue paper machine from Voith
The paper machine is designed for an operating speed of 2,100 meter per minute and will produce 36,000 metric tons of high-quality toilet and towel paper annually from pulp with a working width of 2.7 meter. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2014.
In designing the paper production process, particular importance was accorded to low energy consumption and to low water and wastewater values. Among other things, the use of the NipcoFlex T shoe press was a key factor in choosing Voith. With this technology, the need for thermal energy can be substantially reduced. NipcoFlex T is also ideally suited for production of soft paper and thus meets the high quality requirements of Fripa. The new paper machine will be equipped with other energy-efficient components and systems. The order is completed by extensive maintenance and replacement parts services.
The roots of Fripa go back to 1911. The company offers high-quality tissue paper that meets the constantly growing demands for hygiene in modern society. Fripa is a sought-after partner in the international tissue paper market and is known for its special flexibility and reliability.
