Valmet, Finland, will supply a headbox upgrade and two headbox recondition service packages to Green Forest (QingXin) Paper Industrial Limited paper mill in Qingxin County, Qingyuan, China. The delivery is scheduled to take place in September 2017, and startup is planned for October and November 2017. 

The value of an upgrade of this scope is usually valued around EUR 1 million, according to Valmet.

"Valmet has proven technology, products, and services, bringing us reliability and performance. This upgrade turns our slice controlled headbox into a dilution-controlled headbox, and we expect this to improve our board quality," said Wu Guixing, production director, Green Forest paper mill. 

"This RetroDilution headbox upgrade will bring better controllability of the headbox and improved end product quality with improved basis weight profile and fiber orientation to the customer. We are happy to bring this new technology to China and thank Green Forest for the excellent cooperation and mutual trust," said Kevin Jiang, director, South Sales, China. 

Valmet's delivery includes RetroDilution headbox upgrade to Green Forest (QingXin) Paper Industrial Limited's board machine No.2 (BM 2) and headbox recondition service packages to paper machine 1 (PM 1) and BM 2. This RetroDilution headbox upgrade delivery is first of its kind in mainland China.

The RetroDilution for headbox is a dilution control retrofit that provides a cost-effective way of modernizing an existing slice lip controlled headbox into a dilution controlled one.  

Green Forest Paper Industrial is part of Hop Fung Group Holdings Limited. Hop Fung Group is principally engaged in the manufacture and sale of quality corrugated paper ware products to its more than 550 customers in the manufacturing sectors in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta area.
