Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

CMPC Riograndense, Brazil, has chosen Voith, Germany, to carry out a rebuild of its PDM 1 pulp dryer in Guaíba, a city located in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. The rebuild project will improve the machine's stability and performance, as well as make it easier to carry out maintenance services on the machine's drive systems. 

Upon scheduled completion in the second half of 2016, PDM 1 will increase its capacity to produce up to 1,320 metric tpd at a speed of 165 m/min.

The project will be carried out under the PLP (Process Line Package) concept, whereby Voith takes full responsibility for procuring and managing the supply of all the necessary equipment and services to operate the machine. This includes new controls for the machine's individual drive systems, a steam box with automatic profile control, a threading system, the lubrication and steam and condensate systems, electrical drives, basic and detail engineering and electromechanical assembly, along with all the necessary training and commissioning services.
