Turkey-based Kıvanç Tekstil may be new to packaging, but their broad experience applying innovative and environmental approaches in their textile and energy businesses is also a focus in their containerboard venture. This Greenfield 1,000 TPD recycled containerboard and special packing grade board machine will utilise a wet-end system with AFT’s most advanced POM® technology.

The POM® technology will enable faster grade shifts with lesser waste for the multiple grades planned for the new paper machine.

The new system includes a – complete screen room with MaxFlow screens, a POMix stock processor to feed the paper machine, a POMp degasser, and POMLock drop legs. The sustainable focus of the mill will benefit from this system, which is more compact, more flexible, and results in a cleaner operation with less waste and downtime.

Compared to traditional systems, the POM paper machine wet-end and headbox screening system has a smaller footprint, and the option to have no basement below the paper machine- thus simplifying construction and environmental permits. All this leads to enhanced papermaking performance with high quality and greater production efficiency.
