Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Daio Paper Corp., Japan, has contracted Metso of Finland to rebuild the hardwood kraft fiber line at its Mishima mill on Shikuko island, Japan. Startup of the rebuilt line is scheduled for the end of this year. The value of the order was not disclosed.

Metso will supply main equipment for the rebuild of the Mishima mill's fiber line. "Replacing old machinery of low availability and high maintenance costs with Metso's state-of-the-art machinery will boost production capacity of the fiber line to 1,700 air-dried metric tpd of bleached hardwood kraft pulp," said Håkan Öhlen, sales manager, Metso.

Metso's scope of delivery will include a new screening room, an oxygen delignification stage, and five latest-generation TwinRoll Evolution wash presses. Two of the presses will be installed as brown stock washers, two as post-oxygen washers, and one as a D-stage washer.

Daio Paper primarily produces newsprint, printing paper, paperboard, wrapping paper, linerboard, packaging, and sanitation products such as tissue paper, cardboard, and pulp. The company, formed in 1943, operates 38 consolidated subsidiaries and has an annual mill capacity of more than 3 million metric tons.
