Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The family-owned company Fripa - Papierfabrik Albert Friedrich KG, Germany, has ordered from Voith, Germany, a new tissue production line for its Miltenberg location in Germany. The tissue machine is designed for an operating speed of 2,100 m/min. and will produce 36,000 metric tpy of high-quality toilet and towel paper, with a working width of 2.7 meters. Startup is scheduled for the end of 2014.

In designing the paper production process, particular importance was accorded to low energy consumption and to low water and wastewater values. Among other things, the use of the NipcoFlex T shoe press was a key factor in choosing Voith, Fripa says. With this technology, the need for thermal energy can be substantially reduced. 

NipcoFlex T is also ideally suited for production of "soft paper" and thus meets the quality requirements of Fripa. The new machine will be equipped with other energy-efficient components and systems. The order includes extensive maintenance and replacement parts services.
