Valmet to supply three moisturizer systems to SCG Packaging in Thailand
Both companies are under SCG Packaging in Thailand. Three moisturizers with moisture CD control will be installed at PM6 and PM7 at Wangsala mill and PM11 at Prachinburi mill.
With the new solution, the mills will be able to improve the board quality on paper machines. The deliveries are expected to take place during the first two quarters of 2018. The order is a natural continuation after Valmet IQ Moisturizers’ success at SCG Packaging’s other paper machines.
“We expect to improve the CD moisture 2-sigma variation at least by 40%, which is quite challenging. Other mills in our group that have been equipped with the latest Valmet moisturizer solution, such as Siam Kraft’s PM1, PM3, PM5, PM8, PM16, PM17 and mill at Thai Paper Glassine, have been satisfied with Valmet IQ Moisturizer’s performance. We believe this latest solution will help us to improve the moisture profiles overall and increase the production,” says Mr. Suteephong Sumphaophok, Manager, Plant Reliability and Engineering, Siam Kraft Industry Co., Ltd.
“SCG Packaging has trusted Valmet’s moisturizer technology in various other projects we have done over the years. The repeat order of these three moisturizers show that our performance has met the customer need and they continue to invest in technology and service they trust,” says Hannu Yrjölä, Sales & Service Manager, South East Asia, Automation, Valmet.
