PMP to Supply South India Paper Mills with Paper Production Equipment

PMP Intelli-Nip Shoe Press

Dec. 27, 2018 - In the second half of 2018, PMP (Paper Machinery Producer) has signed a contract with South India Paper Mills Ltd., for a delivery of two core technological items — Intelli-Jet V® Hydraulic Headbox and two Intelli-Nip® Shoe Presses in Tandem configuration. Both items will be implemented on PM6 in mill in Nanjangud, India.

PMP said the installation of the equipment is designed to increase the quality of the product. With PMP's machine components, PM6 will produce testliner, fluting medium and white top kraftliner, with the basis weight of 80-300 g/m2 and design speed of 800 m/min.

According to PMP, the 3-channel Intelli-Jet V Hydraulic Headbox will allow the mill to produce high quality paper and to ensure flexibility of production with wide range of adjustment. Other benefits of PMP's technology include hydraulic and thermal stability, sheet edge quality, clean operation, improved headbox access and more. The headbox will be supplied with a sophisticated Consistency Profiling System to ensure excellent basis weight control, resulting in uniform paper web structure and better CD basis weight profiles.

PMP will also deliver Tandem Intelli-Nip Shoe Presses (module 1300mm) with maximum pressure of 1050 kN/m on both nips, which will maximize the amount of water removed from the paper sheet while optimizing machine efficiency and product quality. PMP Tandem Intelli-Nip Shoe Presses ensure low production costs and high dryness after press.

PMP's scope of supply includes machine controls, spare parts and start-up supervision.

The delivery of both items is scheduled for November 2019 with start-up expected at the beginning of 2020.
