Reconstruction of dry end of paper machine n°5
Kruger Products, Gatineau
The project consisted in increasing the speed of paper machine n°5 by complete rebuilding of the dry end.
This included the installation of the following components:
1. a modern reel with a spool return system
2. a mandrel core puller with lift table
3. a hot glue system for bobbin transfer
4. a new dust recovery system
Moreover, the hood and drying system required replacement, and three new economizers were connected to the existing network with a new white water filter.
The project allowed a significant increase in paper machine speed and a marked reduction in time required from paper press to winder.
