At the end of October this year, Sun Paper has successfully completed rebuild of PM 16, located at the firm's flagship mill in Yanzhou city, Shandong province, which now can produce 150,000 tonnes/y of film base paper (before 90,000 tonnes/y). Apart from PM’s capacity increase, another goal of the project was to change the existing production profile from 1 to 3-layer paper product that is processed into disposable containers for food including paper cups.
This time, PMP Group delivered state-of the-art filler, 4 channel hydraulic headbox Intelli-Jet V® of 3880 mm pondside. The scope of delivery also covered Consistency Profiling System (that ensures excellent basis weight control, resulting in uniform paper web structure and better CD basis weight profile), machine controls, assembly and start-up supervision. All paper quality parameters were reached immediately after start-up that was confirmed by approving a performance protocol by Sun Paper team. The installed headbox brings excellent formation and also production flexibility (basis weight range of 140-250 g/m², maximum speed of 700 m/min).
PMP Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox is one of PMP Group’s most advanced products and is the key element in both Intelli-Technology® and Intelli-Tissue® platform. Only since the year 2000, PMP Group has successfully installed over 130 headboxes worldwide, whereas 67 of those units are located in Asia.
