Successful modernization at Arauco
Optimum results after the rebuild of PM2 at Arauco, Argentina
For the rebuild of PM 2 at their plant in Puerto Esperanza, the Argentine paper mill Arauco has once again chosen Bellmer as its partner. The goals of the modernization - improvement of sheet formation, basis weight and moisture profile - were successfully realized.
The aim of the project was to improve the quality of the fluff pulp produced, focusing primarily on sheet formation and the deviations in caliper, moisture and basis weight values. To achieve this, Bellmer supplied new equipment including a TURBOVaahtoJetter HQRC headbox with a basis weight profile dilution control system. Bellmer has rebuilt the press and formation section and installed a new system to control the moisture profile.
With the machine up and running and the optimization process complete, not only have the aims of the rebuild have been accomplished but in many respects the guaranteed values have improved considerably. As an example, in the cross-machine direction there has been a 71% improvement in the dry basis weight profile and a 54% improvement in the moisture profile.
The joint effort, co-ordination and effective communication between Arauco Argentina and Bellmer have enabled the project to develop perfectly. Both teams were very happy about this positive cooperation.
Arauco Argentina can now boast not only the fact that it is located next to one of the wonders of the world, the Iguazu Falls, but also that it manufactures one of the best quality fluff pulps on the market.
