Kadant Inc.’s subsidiary Kadant Lamort and INDEVCO Group’s affiliate UNIPAKHELLAS S.A. are implementing a new stock preparation system that yields high-quality paper from a wide range of materials while reducing fiber loss and freshwater consumption. UNIPAKHELLAS selected a comprehensive Kadant service package that includes engineering, erection supervision, commissioning, training, and start-up assistance. The system will process a wide array of materials from local OCC and mixed waste to high-quality OCC, including materials that can be challenging to treat in stock preparation. The new line will have the capability to produce a variety of grades including polyethylene-coated paper.

In addition to revamping UNIPAKHELLAS’ current stock preparation line, Kadant Lamort will install the Heli-Drum™ system into a new stock preparation line to process the wide range of raw materials. Kadant Lamort will also supply an approach flow system including Radiclone™ hydrocycling system with high-efficiency contaminant removal to obtain high-quality paper for top-ply, as well as Periscreen-M™ machine screens. A Rotoflex™ recovery strainer will help reduce freshwater consumption, and a screw press reject compactor will contribute to disposal cost reduction. Kadant Lamort will also implement two intelligent, adaptive technologies, BoosTEK™ and FiberNet™, to assist UNIPAKHELLAS’ plans to reduce energy costs and improve fiber recovery.
