Bellmer has rebuilt the press section and increased the pre-dryer section of PM 3 at Greenpaper’s facility in Mexico. The works included a new TurboPress shoe press and rebuild of the last dryer group in the pre-dryer section – a third dryer section was installed here. Bellmer also carried out the aerothermal and hood rebuild of said modification.

In a previous machine upgrade, Greenpaper installed a TurboJetter headbox and a TurboFormer on the same machine.

The PM3 produces coated board from recycled fibre with a paper width of 3,380 mm from 250 — 487 g/m². The installation of the new shoe press and the rebuild of the dryer section already brought the desired positive quality and quantity enhancements.
