Miltenberg PM 7: New energy-efficient tissue process line from Voith successfully in operation
The centerpiece of the new PM 7 is the EvoDry Y Yankee cylinder with the new NipcoFlex T shoe press technology. Other energy-efficient components include the IntensaPulper and the TwinFlo refiner with Pluralis refiner fillings in stock preparation, the innovative approach flow system with the newly developed IntegraGuard headbox screen, the MasterJet T headbox as well as dryer hoods and air systems perfectly coordinated with the production process.

Of particular importance to us were maximally optimized energy consumption, moderate operating costs, low water and waste water values and a high level of paper softness. The new PM 7 meets all these requirements,” explains Fripa Managing Director Andreas Noack.
