Grasim Industries to Install Metso Recovery Boiler

Metso will supply the Harihar Polyfibers unit of Grasim Industries Limited with a recovery boiler to replace the two existing recovery boilers at the rayon grade pulp mill located in Kumarapatnam, Karnataka. Start-up of the boiler is scheduled for the Q3 of 2012.
The recovery boiler for black liquor burning is rated to fire 475 tons of dry solids per day and designed for the future capacity of 600 tons ds/day and pressure of 65 bar. Metso’s delivery includes the main equipment and piping and standard equipment for the recovery boiler as well as field instruments.
The new recovery boiler will improve steam generation and help lower operating and maintenance costs over the mill’s two present bidrum recovery boilers. “We have been operating two recovery boilers since 1974 and 1978 and there are various concerns associated with these boilers due to ageing. After evaluating various options, we entered into a contract with Metso for a new recovery boiler as replacement for existing boilers for ensuring safe and reliable operation and enhanced environmental performance. This recovery boiler project is prestigious for Harihar plant and we hope Metso with their professional approach will meet our expectations”, says Mr Rajendra Jain, Executive President, Harihar Polyfibers.
