SKÄRBLACKA, Sweden , January 21, 2022 (press release) –

AFT recently had another successful refiner start-up with the BillerudKorsnäs group, world leader in packaging grades. Our new pulp mill reject refiner started-up in December at the 460 000 t/d Skärblacka mill in Sweden, designed to defiberize knots, shives and fiber bundles coming from pulp screening. Combined with Finebar® technology, AFT refiners deliver optimized performance and energy savings which will help support BillerudKorsnäs’ sustainability goals through resource-efficient production.

The Skärblacka installation also includes an AFTLinx integration unit for monitoring refiner performance remotely. Our optional IoT gateway collects equipment-specific operating data to address customer needs for remote product support and service. The data access allows AFT specialists to assist with start-ups, conduct comprehensive real-time machine diagnostics, and provide advice for optimized refiner operation.
