The customer is one of the world’s largest manufacturers within airlaid – an industry responsible for producing e.g. napkins, feminine hygiene products, wipes and toilet paper.
Dan-Web Machinery A/S was chosen as the supplier of the complete production line with Moldow A/S as the supplier of the extraction and filtration system including fans for a large new manufacturing facility in the U.S.
According to Moldow’s managing director, K. Preben Hansen, Moldow's cooperation with Dan-Web goes back more than 20 years. They were looking for a supplier capable of ensuring the best solutions within dust extraction and air filtration to include as part of their complete scope of delivery.
The installation and commissioning of the production line has just been finalized.
"We have supplied four large baghouse filter systems for a total capacity of approx. 600.000 m3 air per hour and about 70 fans," says product manager Johannes Ipsen. "They are to ensure correct extraction from the production facilities and filtration of the air, separating the cellulose fibers from the airstream. The captured fibers are then transported and feed to balers via jet conveyors and cyclones, and the clean process air is returned to the production facilities."
According to Ipsen, the companies are already working on a similar project for an airlaid manufacturer in Scandinavia with the installation starting within a few weeks.
