KWI Megacell V 40.4 supplied to Cartiera del Chiese
The papermill built along river Chiese, a few steps out of the nice city of Montichiari, was still operating a KWI Sedicell built in th late 70s, when people from KWI Italia were asked to visit;
the unit was still performing well, but an upgrade in production of kraft paper was expected and all the water management of the plant needed to be upgraded.
The papermill technical direction, due to the great experience with the Sedicell unit, was interested in a brand new KWI Supercell unit; the plant was however lacking of available space and the density of water coming from the production line looked very variable: this was the perfect scenario for a KWI Megacell V unit!
Cartiera del Chiese commissioned a Megacell MCV 40.4 unit, with 4 bodies completely made in stainless steel, in September 2014 and KWI installed the equipment in the end of December; the pressurization system selected was an ADR 80, the best in stability of performances, both installed and started in less than 5 days. Megacell V performances resulted outstanding with an incoming water quality that resulted in being even more variable and critical than expected.
