Modern Karton signed a contract with Voith for the extension and modernization of its existing OCC line. Within the scope of the contract, Voith will also supply a new stock preparation line for pulp and recovered paper. The new order follows the successful upgrade and expansion of the existing DIP line.
The objective of the modernization project is to increase production by 30% and to allow the processing of recovered paper with a maximum contaminant content of 12%.
The order comprises Voith’s BlueLine stock preparation components, including IntensaMaXX, IPU reject pump and IntensaScreenDrum for disposing of the contaminants from the existing pulper. Voith’s scope of supply also includes a protector system, HiClean HCL5 EcoMizer cleaner system for sand removal, LT3 lightweight contaminant cleaner, InfiltraDiscfilter and several IntegraScreens for fractionation and fine screening.
The scope of supply for the new stock preparation line comprises various components from the BlueLine product range. As an alternative to pulp, high-quality recovered paper can also be processed. This new stock preparation line provides the greatest possible flexibility for manufacturing the top ply of the white top testliner.
In addition to installing the BlueLine stock preparation components, Voith will also be responsible for the basic and detailed engineering as well as on-site services.
Voith will also implement an innovative water management control system that automatically controls the complete water system for the entire production line in a wide range of operating conditions. This contributes significantly to helping achieve consistently low fresh water consumption and wastewater volume.
To improve the quality and allow lower quality recovered paper to be processed, the existing DIP line was rebuilt by Voith in 2019.
Established in 1978, Modern Karton is today the largest manufacturer of packaging paper in Turkey and one of the biggest in Europe. It has an annual production volume of more than 1,000,000 metric tons on the basis of completely recycled fibers.
The Voith Group is a global technology company.
