Bellmer Vaahto has won a major contract at Stora Enso Skutskär pulp mill in Sweden.
The Skutskär mill is located 160 km north of Stockholm and 16 km south of Gävle on the Baltic coast. Pulp dryer DM7 will be converted from bale-based market pulp into soft wood fluff pulp, which is delivered in rolls to customers. The capacity of DM7 will be about 150,000 tons annually.
Bellmer´s scope of supply includes a TurboJetter hydraulic headbox with dilution control and associated approach flow and white water collection systems. The dry-end of DM 7 will be equipped with a TurboReeler for jumbo roll reeling, a TurboTransporter for jumbo roll handling and a TurboWinder for customer roll winding and slitting.
Bellmer companies based at the Niefern headquarters and winder excellence centre in Willich are internal partners for Bellmer Vaahto, the Finnish main contractor.
Fluff pulps are used as raw material in absorbent hygiene products and air laid products such as diapers.
