Voith Advanced PRODUCTS installed at green Bay pkg
According to a report from Voith, the installation of a combination of its FormMax, PressMax and DryMax, on paper machines at Green Bay Packaging’s Green Bay, WI, and York, PA, improved performance.
In the former, press or dryer section, the Voith products combined as AdvancedPRODUCTs to lower operating costs, increase productivity, improve quality and provide a safer workplace for operators, says Voith.
Working with the Green Bay Packaging mill team, the FormMax approach has resulted in more uniform drainage, more level dry line on the wire, sheet breaks halved, chemical cleaning and hazards significantly reduced. Also, the paper strength target is achieved using a lower basis weight in the forming section, says Voith.
This FormMax solution includes the DuoShake to optimize fiber orientation through high-frequency shaking of the breast roll and to achieve good formation and a low tensile strength ratio. In addition, the DuoCleaner Excell traversing cleaning system on both wires is significantly more effective than high pressure showers. It gives more uniform cleaning of the surface and structure of forming fabrics. The Voith I-Series forming fabric will be installed later this year as part of continued optimization.
