A full-line supplier for the paper industry, Voith recently carried out a successful pulper retrofit at Cartonifício Valinhos, a packaging board manufacturer from Valinhos, a city located in the inland area of the Brazilian state of São Paulo.
In the papermaking process, the pulper is responsible for breaking down the suspension of fibers extracted from the recovered paper and board.
Pulping systems operate based on important underlying parameters such as consistency, temperature, mechanical stress and residence time, among others, which are necessary to ensure appropriate operating parameters for subsequent processes.
The production line of Cartonifício Valinhos stands out for using 100% recovered paper and board as raw material. The retrofit led to improved paper quality and a 10% higher processing capacity, since the equipment is now available 24 hours a day, nonstop. Before the retrofit, the pulper encountered continuous disruptions caused by contaminant build-up.
