Valmet containerboard machines for China

Valmet will supply three new containerboard machines to Chinese customers for start-up in 2019. Two of the machines will produce liner and the other, fluting. Typically, a project of this type and scope is valued at €30-40 million, says Valmet.

Included will be six new headboxes and three press sections. For the liner board machines, OptiFlo Fourdrinier headboxes were selected along with two OptiPress Linear double-nip press sections with linear web run for excellent end product properties, high dewatering capacity and good runnability.

The delivery for the fluting machine includes an OptiFlo Fourdrinier headbox and a center roll based OptiPress center press section with shoe press technology.

All machinery will be equipped with Valmet DNA machine control systems.
