In hygiene paper production, dust and residual paper must be completely cleared from production. The Arkhbum Tissue Group has opted for technology from Hunkeler Systeme AG.
Last year, in the Vorsino Industrial Park, located south-west of Moscow, the Russian Arkhbum Tissue Group LLC put a new plant for the manufacture of paper hygiene products into production. The raw material is converted into ﬁnished paper rolls on two converting lines from the Italian manufacturer Futura. Large quantities of dust and residual paper are produced during the converting process. Using technology from Hunkeler Systeme AG, the waste is extracted in a controlled manner and the dust is ﬁltered out of the air. The system returns the clean transport air to the working environment. On both converting lines, the dust is extracted at 21 suction points per line. The residual paper itself, is removed from the processingn area via one extraction point per line. A press compresses the waste into compact bales. The technology from Hunkeler Systeme AG operates according to the proven negative pressure principle, with the fan located at the very end of the line. The resulting suction effect ensures that the dust-laden transport air cannot escape from the pipelines into the environment on its way into the jet ﬁlter system.
