Zellstoff Pöls, in Austria, is one of the largest manufacturer of high quality, chlorine-free bleached long-fibre sulphate pulp in Central and South Eastern Europe. For the new PM2 paper machine, Nash is supplying the vacuum system for dewatering in the wire section and the press section. The Zellstoff Pöls PM2 focuses on “machine glazed” papers (a paper with very high strength), and incorporates the production of paper basis weights between 28 and 120 g/m². This wide product spectrum places high demands on the flexibility of the vacuum system, as the method of drying has to adapt to each paper grade. The major challenge was adapting the vacuum at the various suction points for each specified paper weight and the required drying needs. This was accomplished through the use of frequency converters that allowed for “fine adjustment” of the speed and the vacuum level to meet the specific requirements of the paper grade produced.
