New procurement Canada’s AFT has announced the company will supply a new POM thin stock approach system to Mexico’s Papeles y Conversiones de Mexico containerboard mill.


The Mexican facility specialises in the manufacture, conversion and marketing of high quality printing and packaging products,” AFT said in a statement.


The project will consist of two POMp degassers, two POM Dynamix static mixers, two POMlock seal tanks, two POM headers, and two POM head tanks for PCM’s two-ply PM2, along with accompanying spare parts and system engineering,” the statement said


The value of the latest deal was not disclosed by the Canadian business.


The POMp degasser provides a compact and efficient solution at the beginning of the white water handling process, requiring fewer and smaller silos and tanks downstream. By removing air before the paper machine headbox, the short circulation system will promote better machine runnability with fewer sheet breaks, faster start-ups and grade changes, reduced chemical and water use, and greater system cleanliness,” according to AFT.
