Cellier - as an Activity of ABB Process Automation in France - designs, builds and starts up turnkey industrial units for the management, receipt, preparation and dosing of process or functional chemicals. These chemicals are used in manufacturing processes of paper, board and tissue for printing and writing, packaging and hygienic applications.
These sophisticated installations are designed to optimise the use of chemicals adding value to the base sheet by enhancing the quality while complying with technical requirements (printability, brightness, etc.), as well as improving the paper machine runability.
Application fields: de-inking, stock preparation (wet-end), coating colour preparation and sizing (coating kitchen, working station).
Associated services: audit of existing facilities, staff training, maintenance, spare parts.
ABB will take part to the symposium organised in Spain on 19th June in Barcelona and 21st June in San Sebastian in co-operation with the French association SYMOP (Syndicat des Entreprises de Technologie de Production), as well as with Ubifrance, the French Trade Agency for international business development. Main topics are innovation and technologies to enhance competitiveness of the paper industry. ABB will present innovative solutions which are part of the chemical delivery systems offer, particularly the starch continuous preparation unit which has been recently successfully implemented in various projects.
Cellier Activity of ABB France successfully started up the enzymatic starch preparation unit and film press working stations supplied to the Spanish Group SAICA for its new paper machine PM11 built at Partington mill (Manchester), United Kingdom. The PM11 is an 8.2 m wide machine, designed to produce approx. 400,000 tons of lightweight test liner and fluting grades out of 100% recycled raw materials, at a speed of 1,700 m/mn. The starch preparation unit is designed to produce 150 tons per day of bone dry starch.
