CMPC Riograndense chooses Voith for Pulp Dryer Rebuild

Heidenheim, São Paulo
Voith has been chosen by CMPC Riograndense to carry out a rebuild of its PDM1 pulp dryer in Guaíba, a city located in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul.

The rebuild project aims to improve the machine's stability and perfor-mance, as well as to make it easier to carry out maintenance services on the machine's drive systems. Upon scheduled completion in the second half of 2016, the PDM1 will increase its capacity to produce up to 1,320 metric tons per day at a speed of 165 meters per minute.

The project will be carried out under the PLP (Process Line Package) con-cept, whereby Voith takes full responsibility for procuring and managing the supply of all the necessary equipment and services to operate the ma-chine. This includes new controls for the machine's individual drive sys-tems, a steam box with automatic profile control, a threading system, the lubrication and steam and condensate systems, electrical drives, basic and detail engineering and electromechanical assembly, along with all the nec-essary training and commissioning services.
