Metso's delivery will include rebuilds of the coating and drying sections. Drying capacity will be increased with two OptiDry Vertical impingement dryers enabling both a production and a speed increase. Replacing the coating station with an OptiLayer curtain coater and a new coating color supply system will further improve the folding boxboard quality. The rebuilt PM 1 will produce folding boxboard in the basis weight range of 235 to 490 g/m2.
