The perfect quality of paper web 11.02.2020
A large-scale project of installation of a modernized system of paper quality control at Papermaking Machine No. 4 was accomplished at the Saint Petersburg Paper Mill – Branch of Goznak at the end of 2019.
The project developer and manager, Head Metrologist of the Saint Petersburg Paper Mill Alexander Kobchikov explained that the equipment had been produced by Valmet (Finland) in four months only specially for the Saint Petersburg Paper Mill of Goznak.
“The uniqueness of the new quality control system is that Valmet IQ quality control system supplied to the mill measures 8 parameters of the paper web, and that is the maximum number of measured parameters for quality control systems supplied to Russia. The previous control system controlled 6 parameters of the paper web only. Technically, we have a modern quality control system allowing to make paper of the whole range of Papermaking Machine No. 4”, says Alexander Kobchikov.
Not only wholesale customers but also every Russian citizen will be able to appreciate the quality of paper produced at Papermaking Machine No. 4. They produce paper for federal special stamps, excise stamps, self-adhesive paper for postage stamps, other special kinds of paper for the state customers as well as paper of the general purpose industrial assortment.
