PMT will supply a new high capacity Top Former as well as a new Film Size Press to NR Agarwal Industries Ltd. for the major rebuild of their machine located in Vapi, India. The 4.5 m machine will produce writing and printing paper, as well as newspaper, using DIP and HW paper. The new PMT HC Top Former will give the necessary flexibility to wider operating ranges, headbox flows and pre-forming zone of the paper machine. The paper quality will be improved by adding a Film Size Press. The strat up is planned by March 2011.
The preference of NR Agarwal for the PMT technology is the direct consequence of the successful start up of the PMT shoe press in February 2010 in the Ruby Macons PM#3 mill in Vapi (India), and further orders taken with Naini Tissue Ltd. As part of the project, Ruby Macons will make the rebuild of the dryer section, and will manufacture part of the top former and size press under PMT basic engineering and supervision.
