Burgo Sora ordered an OnQ ModuleSteam steambox from Voith Paper Automation. With a steam width of 3,930 mm, the OnQ ModuleSteam steambox is going to be installed in the DuoSuction NipcoFlex press. Wood-free coated paper with a basis weight range of 90-130 g/m² is manufactured on the PM 1 in Sora, Italy. This steambox in the press section will allow for increases in dryness and an improved moisture profile.
In cooperation with Burgo Group's Technology and Investment department, Voith Paper experts, with their extensive process knowledge, determined the optimum working point for this application of the steambox. A key advantage of Voith’s proposal for Burgo was represented by the OnQ Profilmatic control software, whose control algorithms react optimally to a wide variety of process-specific factors. This way, the goal of the Burgo Group to design production as efficiently as possible will be met.
Voith Paper engineers have recently optimized the design of the OnQ ModuleSteam which uses an improved steam valve. OnQ ModuleSteam is therefore now an integral and leading part of the “Perfect Fit” portfolio of product solutions by Voith Paper Automation.
