Bekaert Solaronics is partnering with Bellmer for the installation of a UniDryer® V3 system in PM14 at Technocell Günzach’s paper mill in Germany. The extensive revamp of the paper machine is scheduled to take place in the 4th quarter 2015.
This installation is part of the Technocell Günzach’s project to expand the production of pre-impregnated papers, a key growth segment. After the rebuild, the paper machine PM14 will produce both pre-impregnated PRIP® as well as nonwoven papers coated on both sides for wallpapers. The objective of the installation in the Günzach mill is the non-contact drying of a new specialty paper.
The UniDryer® V3 offers a rapid heating, high energy efficiency, high compactness and ultimately a better paper quality. The system will be equipped with Gem12E, the latest generation of Bekaert Solaronics emitters that allow an increased drying efficiency by approximately 10 % compared to the regular Gem12 emitters.
