The BoosTEK™ Performance Pack has been successfully employed in the Laval Sur Vologne Mill and, as a results of that, Lucart has decided to apply this new and disruptive technology and awarded Kadant Lamort the contarct for five additional units to boost the performance of the screening systems installed in all the other mills of the group. 

BoosTEK™ utilizes inherent system pressure to amplify the breakdown of the stock mats that form on, and ultimately block, the screen cylinder. This proprietary technology dramatically improves the performance of the screen - increasing capacity, contaminant collection, and the yield of clean pulp fibre. 

Alain Lascar, director of technology and marketing at Kadant Lamort, noted: "Significant savings make this a cost-effective upgrade with a compelling return on investment. We have achieved up to a 40% reduction in energy consumption or up to a 65% gain in fiber yield depending on the operational focus". 

"We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Kadant. The technological developments and ideas which we have created together are in line with Lucart’s philosophy, in particular regarding energy saving and the reduction of industrial waste collection, whilst respecting the highest quality standards which is the ultimate aim of Lucart’s recycled products" said Franco Pasquini, engineering director of Lucart. 

Installed on either the accept or the reject line of a screen, the gains can be both qualitative and quantitative. BoosTEK’s adaptive intelligent technology reacts to the needs of the upstream screen, optimizing the running conditions of the stock flow to maximize performance and output.
