UPM restarts screening machine after Voith retrofit at its Chapelle Darblay mill in France

June 21, 2010 - 20:04

HEIDENHEIM, Germany, June 22, 2010 (Press Release) -UPM's Chapelle Darblay mill in Grand Couronne, France has recently successfully retrofitted and started-up a Voith Paper C-bar C screen basket in an existing Kadant-Lamort SPN 15 screening machine.

The extra screening capacity allowed the permanent shutdown of one of the two parallel SPN 15 screens (a saving of approximately 560 MWh/a or more than 30,000 €/a).

The unique and reliable manufacturing concept with more open area and an optimum profile performance resulted in a higher screening capacity. Therefore, the installation of the C-bar C led to an improved sticky removal efficiency by 11 % (85 % instead of 74 %).
