- refining, mixing

- dilution, purification

- de-earation

The Paper Machine: for consistent quality

When the paper pulp reaches the machine head, it is made up of a highly - diluted suspension of fibres containing nearly 99,5% water and only a few grams of "dry matter" per litre.

Each production parameter is constantly controlled by automatic control loops: flow, concentration, temperature, pressure, speed ... These fully automated stages unable us to archieve a reliable result and constantly quality.
