Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Kuban Papir, Russia, has signed a contract with PMP (Poland) for a wet end rebuild of its No. 1 tissue machine. TM 1 will be supplied with state-of-the-art new technological items provided by PMP. The project driving force is a modern technology that ensures energy savings solutions following global trends. Additionally, excellent tissue quality is expected.

TM 1, with a reel trim of 2,750 mm, produces tissue with a basis weight range at the reel from 15 to 30 gsm and a maximum operating speed of 1,000 m/min. As an existing headbox is not efficient enough, a main goal of the project is to ensure higher efficiency of production through applying a modern new Intelli-Jet V® hydraulic headbox. Generally, project goals are focused on TM speed-up to 1,500 m/min, capacity increase, and tissue quality improvement.

PMP has been supporting Kuban Papir development since 2009 through deliveries of core technological items. In 2009, Intelli-Reel® was implemented. This time PMP’s scope of delivery includes a single layer Intelli-Jet V hydraulic headbox of 2,850 mm ponside. To ensure proper TM operation, PMP will also deliver design engineering for silo and flume reworks. 

PMP will support Kuban Papir during the entire time of the project by executing mill assembly, startup supervision, and operator’s trainings. Startup is scheduled for the beginning of 2017.

PMP Intelli-Jet V Hydraulic Headbox Technology today is a leading solution in the pulp and paper industry. It is a part of the PMP Intelli-Paper platform for papermakers. There are over 140 units working successfully on six continents.
Kuban Papir was founded in 2003. It is one of the largest manufacturing and distributive holdings of paper and hygienic products in South Russia. Its wide range of products varies from B2B to B2C markets.
