GL&V to supply new equipment to BillerudKorsnäs Gruvön Mill

Alternate Text

GL&V Sweden AB is pleased to announce that BillerudKorsnäs Gruvön Mill has placed an order for a complete Refiner and Deflaker system and a combined Save-All/Broke Thickener together with Duflo® Pump technology to their new Board Machine, Next Generation project.

GL&V Sweden AB will deliver thirteen DD®6000 Refiner and three DF-20-2 Deflakers for print-, middle- and back ply. The energy efficient DD6000 refiners will be equipped with the patented Anti-Plate Clash System, APCS, which detects and prevents Refiner Plate clashing. GL&V´s Refiner Plate Wear Indicator, an accurate laser-based system that measures the refiner plate wear, is also included in the scope.

GL&V Sweden AB will also supply a combined Save-All/Broke Thickener including a Duflo Pump to BillerudKorsnäs Gruvön Mill, this will be the 5th Celleco® Centerdisc® CDI disc filter for the BillerudKorsnäs group. The unique and strong design of the CDI filter makes it a perfect filter for this type of application. The ability to combine the Save-All and Broke Thickening applications saves the investment of a separate Broke Thickener filter. The CDI filter will be equipped with stainless steel filter covers to improves the runnability and reduce maintenance cost.

The Duflo technology is well known in the pulp and paper industry and in the Gruvön Mill specifically. The Duflo pump will take care of the big difference in flow as well as in consistency which is common with the operation of a disc filter installed as a Save-All/Broke Thickener. A key success for this is the efficient Duflo Impeller and the possibility to easily turn the internal vacuum system on and off.

Planned start-up is scheduled to spring 2019.
