Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

KapStone Paper and Packaging Corp., has ordered from PMT Italia, Italy, an upgrade of No. 3 paper machine at its North Charleston, S.C., USA, mill. The scope of the rebuild, planned for a first quarter 2014 startup, includes replacement of the existing 6.2 meter press section and extension of the first dryer section.

PMT will supply a new single ÆGO™FLX SHOE module with mated ÆGO™FLX ROLL as part of the new press configuration. The project is expected to improve the capability and efficiency of No. 3 paper machine in producing ultra high performance (UPL) lightweight linerboard grades.

PMT will also supply startup and commissioning services. This is the second shoe press project for PMT in North America.
