Valmet will deliver an evaporation line for Södra Cell’s Mönsteras pulp mill in Sweden. The line, which will replace an older line at the mill, is scheduled to start up in the first quarter of 2023.

According to Valmet, the new line will increase the mill’s evaporation capacity and further improve its steam economy and energy efficiency by producing high dry solids for the recovery boiler. The water efficiency of the mill also will be improved.

The evaporation line will have a capacity of 530 metric tons of evaporated water per hour and will produce clean condensates for reuse in the mill processes.
