Key applications for the Nomex rolls include: high-temperature supercalenders (e.g.
Two more profilers will control the CD profiles from two of the mill's supercalenders. Another profiler will be installed on the machine calender of PM3 at the company's Kyro mill.
In addition to the two paper machines, the mill also has its own power and pulp operations, four extruders, an off-machine coater, and two supercalenders. It produces approximately 80 percent of its own energy by burning natural gas, wood bark, waste paper and other scrap materials.
It includes modifications to several of the machine's components and the offline supercalenders. They will allow a significant increase in machine speed, bringing Ahlstrom a capacity increase close to 20,000 tons annually.
The investment in Ahlstrom Turin PM 8 would include modification of several components of the paper machine and the off-line supercalenders.
It is suitable for all supercalenders and other multinip calenders, regardless of the calender make.
In the past, high quality smooth paper surfaces were obtained only through the use of larger and more complex off-line supercalenders.
Project delivery includes rebuilding the press and dryer sections, coating station, rereeler, supercalenders, and winder.
This rebuild--part of the division's Profit Enhancement Program--is a US$ 47.5 million project that includes modifications to the paper machine itself; added sheet inspection systems on the machine and coater; new automatic splicing systems for coaters, supercalenders, and winders; and installation of a large, complex automatic paper reel handling system.

The rebuild will improve the quality of the magazine paper by rebuilding its wet end including the wire section and new headbox and adding a new profile system to the supercalenders. Capacity of the mill's de-inking facility for paper recycling will also increase.
