Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Hamburger-Rieger GmbH & Co. KG, Germany, has ordered from Metso, Finland, a rebuild of No. 1 paper machine at its Spremberg mill in Germany. Startup of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2011. The value of the order was not disclosed.

Metso's delivery will include a rebuild of the existing pond size press into a film size press and supply of a TurnFloat air turn as well as a PowerDry Plus air dryer for coating drying. The new film size press with two new applicator beams will enable the mill to produce both surface sized and pigment coated papers.

The applicator rolls will be provided with a CoteFalcon cover, suitable for both film coating and surface sizing. Contactless drying with the high-capacity PowerDry Plus air dryer provides the most efficient solution with respect to paper quality and energy consumption. The maximum trim width of PM 1 is 5,300 mm at a production speed of up to 1,200 m/min.

The Spremberg mill of Hamburger-Rieger has been producing white top testliner grades from 100% waste paper since 2005.
