Sample article from our Pulp & Paper Industry

ADANA, Turkey , March 22, 2022 (press release) –

Kıvanç Tekstil may be new to packaging, but their broad experience applying innovative and environmental approaches in their textile and energy businesses is also a focus in their containerboard venture. This greenfield 1,000 tpd recycled containerboard and special packing grade board machine will utilize a wet end system with AFT’s most advanced POM® technology. This technology choice was essential to enable faster grade shifts with less waste for the multiple grades planned for the new paper machine.

The system includes a complete screen room with MaxFlow screens, a POMix stock processor to feed the paper machine, POMp degassing, and POMLock drop legs.  The mill’s sustainability focus will benefit from this system, which is more compact, more flexible, and results in a cleaner operation with less waste and down time.

Compared to traditional systems, the POM paper machine wet end and headbox screening system has a smaller footprint, and the option to have no basement below the paper machine - thus simplifying construction and environmental permits. All this leads to enhanced paper making performance with high quality and greater production efficiency.
