Take-Over of Renkum PM 2 signed: Successful conversion from newsprint to packaging paper
Just after start-up the rebuilt PM 2 already proved that the produced paper quality reaches the market demands on all points.
With a wire width of 8.4 m the paper machine was equipped with a new two-layer MasterJet Pro M2 headbox, a DuoFormer D II, a DuoCentri NipcoFlex press, a SpeedFlow sizing unit and a new CombiDuoRun after dryer section. The PM 2 produces Testliner and Fluting in a basis weight range of 70-160 g/m².
Voith did not only rebuild the paper machine itself: Within the Process Line Package scope, Voith as general contractor also adjusted and rebuilt all adjacent processes and utilities. This also included a new OCC stock preparation and the Wet End Process. Based on the results of a pre-engineering, the scope of supply also covered all necessary adaptions on the steam, water and power supply as well as civil works.
