Kuzbasskiy SKARABEY has activated the second grid table of the machine

The second grid table of the new cardboard machine (KDM-2) has been activated recently. It will improve the paper web forming, reduce the number of breakages and allow to produce paper and cardboard of the higher quality.

Kuzbasskiy SKARABEY continues to accelerate KDM-2 that is now works at 50% of its capacity. Starting the second grid table has become another stage of work for ramping up to full production. The first samples of the paper made by using two grids were presented at RosUpack 2023 in Moscow.

Due to pressure created by tension of two grids paper pulp dehydration and paper web forming goes between two grids by removing water in two opposite horizontal directions: right and left. This results in higher physical and mechanical values of paper and cardboard.

Besides, the second grid table makes the process of paper&cardboard production more cost-effective because the dehydration occurs more intensively and steam consumption at the drying section of the machine reduces 10-12 times.
