PM3 in Dunaujvaros turns over 1,000 m/min production speed

In autumn 2019, Paper Machine 3 in Dunaújváros raises its production capacity by 5% due to the project aimed at the increasing of production capacity. The modernization to be implemented in several phases will result in the production of extra 11,500 tons of paper annually, that is, the 40-year-old but still modern paper machine will have the capacity to produce 221,500 tons of paper in total.

In the first phase of the project implemented in August 2019, the vacuum-park was extended: besides the two vacuum pumps installed in 2016, one more unit was installed, which was the basic condition of the increase in production capacity. The energy consumption of the new pumps is 35% less compared to their 40-year-old predecessors, which signifies a great step toward a more environmentally aware operation.

 

During the second phase of the project, the pulper under the Pope-Reel was rebuilt and an automatic set change system was also installed for the Winder. As a result of these measures, the tasks during operation were decreased, which ensures faster paper reel removal.

 

The third and last phase of the reconstruction includes the expansion of the stock preparation section: at the beginning of 2020, the disused pulper 2 and conveyor line 2 will be replaced by modern equipment in line with the increased production capacity. This phase requiring lengthy construction preparations and involving difficult pipe installation tasks is planned to be commissioned in January 2020.
