Espoo, Finland 10 August 2016 -- Valmet will supply a moisturizer system to Zhejiang Dongda Paper Co. Ltd. in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. The new solution, Valmet IQ Moisturizer, will enable the mill to improve board quality on its paper machine PM2.
The order is included in Valmet's second quarter 2016 orders received. The delivery will take place in September 2016.
"IQ Moisturizer is very important for our PM2. Before our decision, we visited another mill where it has been installed and were very impressed by its performance. We expect the solution to solve our current curl issue and help us to increase the machine speed to the targeted level," says Sun Guanfa, General Manager, Zhejiang Dongda Paper Co. Ltd.
"We have earlier supplied a Valmet DNA distributed control system, a Valmet IQ quality control system and a Valmet IQ Process and Quality Vision (PQV) system for Zhejiang Dongda Paper's PM2, and the mill has been very satisfied with their good performance and stable runnability. IQ Moisturizer will now provide the mill with easy and fast curl control without any other curl control measures," says Guo Zhutuan, Sales Director, Automation, Valmet.
