Grace Paper to Install second Tissue Machine at Indonesian Mill

PT Graha Cemerlang Paper Utama (Grace Paper), a member of Kompas Gramedia, Indonesia, will install a new Intelli-Tissue 2100 machine at its mill in Cikampek, Indonesia, some 80 km from Jakarta. The mill’s second unit to be supplied by PMPoland S.A, the 3,650 mm crescent former Intelli-Tissue 2100 machine (mirror version of the mill’s first PMPoland unit) has a maximum capacity of 140 metric tpd and a maximum operating speed of 2,000 m/min.

Although basically identical to the first PMPoland machine installed in 2005, the new machine will have a higher maximum operating speed and thus approximately a 5% higher capacity. It will be able to produce tissue in a basis weight range of 12 - 42 gsm for conversion into toilet rolls, facial tissue, and towels from 100% virgin pulp, both hardwood and softwood.

The scope of supply covers stock approach, the entire tissue machine (Intelli-Jet V headbox, Intelli-Former Crescent Former, Intelli-Press, Intelli-Reel, and 15-ft YD with high efficiency gas hood), including auxiliary systems (such as lubrication system, steam & condensate, and vacuum systems, dust, and mist removal systems).

The equipment supply and startup are scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
