The Austrian paper manufacturer Rondo Ganahl AG in Frastanz is setting new standards.
For the dissolution of raw materials for white ceiling, Rondo chooses a new development of Qualifiber.
The special, conical shape of the container, as well as the dissolving unit, bring significantly more advantages than expected.
Compared to the previously used pulper, only about 70 % of the specific energy is now required for dissolution.
The new pulper can either pulp up to 160 t/d of white raw materials, or up to 350 t/d of own waste from corrugated board production.This provides a very high degree of flexibility, which benefits the availability of the paper machine.
Operations Manager Thomas Ogermann:
“The cooperation with Qualifiber was extremely pleasant, as it has been in past projects.
In the planning phase, we benefited above all from the very detailed and accurate as-is survey and 3D projections provided by Qualifiber.
With our very tight, limited space, this was critically important.
This enabled potential difficulties to be identified and eliminated at a very early stage.
The installation and commissioning went absolutely smoothly and without any delays.
From a technological point of view, we have made a significant step forward in terms of resolution quality.
Non-paper components such as films/plastics are separated largely unshredded, thus significantly reducing the workload of coarse and fine screening.
The very high level of expertise of Mr. Grebien, combined with the very open and lively exchange of experience and knowledge among each other, as well as the excellent cooperation between the Rondo and Qualifiber teams, were in my view the main factors for the success of the project.
The result has exceeded all our expectations.
We would choose Qualifiber again as a partner for the pulper project.”
