Valmet’s delivery will include high technology equipment to improve paper machine performance. The scope also includes a new metalizing MG dryer cylinder, with a construction based on research and stress analysis, producing opportunities for operating efficiency, energy efficiency, and increased speeds. MG dryer will operate with a hood and remote control system and a transfer box. The design of this transfer box procures a stable distribution of air and it will be installed before the MG Dryer to avoid any problems of wrinkles and bubbles.
