CMPC Celulosa S. A., Santiago, Chile, announced that it will upgrade the pulp drying line stock preparation systems at its Pacifico mill in Mininco, Chile. Metso, Finland, will handle the upgrade. Startup is scheduled for the second quarter of 2011.

Metso's delivery will include Delta screens, cleaners for reject handling and particle separation, engineering, erection, and startup supervision. The upgrade will improve pulp quality and cleanliness and reduce loss of fiber and electricity consumption at the mill.

The mill has a capacity of 500,000 metric tpy of ECF bleached softwood kraft pulp from radiata pine.
