Valmet will rebuild Koehler Paper’s power boilers at its Oberkirch and Kehl paper mill sites in Germany to increase the production of sustainable energy from renewable sources.

The orders were included in Valmet’s orders received of the third quarter 2022. The value of the orders will not be disclosed. The joint value of such rebuilds and supply scopes is typically around EUR 20 million.

In Oberkirch, Valmet will convert an existing circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler from combusting coal to biomass. The delivery will be taken over by Koehler in October 2024. In Kehl, Valmet will supply a fuel upgrade on a CFB boiler, and this delivery will be taken over by the customer in September 2023. With the modification, new fuels – mainly sludges – will be added to the existing biomass fuel portfolio.

valmet logo rgb“By switching from bituminous coal to biomass as the primary fuel for our location in Oberkirch, we will be cutting more than 150,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year. By converting away from fossil fuels, Koehler is proactively playing its part in reducing global warming,” says Dr. Stefan Karrer, COO, Koehler Group.

“Valmet is serving customers with solutions for decarbonization and sustainable energy production, and we are happy to share the journey toward a carbon neutral future with Koehler Paper,” says Aleksi Salmirinne, Vice President, Energy business unit, Pulp and Energy business line, Valmet.

The combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Oberkirch produces approximately 100,000 MWh of electric power and 330,000 metric tonnes of steam per year for paper production. The Kehl CFB boiler has a 44 MW thermal capacity, and the plant power generation capacity is 9 MW.

Information about Valmet’s delivery

Valmet's delivery scope to the Oberkirch plant includes boiler modifications and external equipment for converting the coal-fired CFB boiler for biomass; a new biomass feeding system, new burners for renewable fuel, additional heating surfaces, ash removal improvement, a selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) system and additive feeding for the baghouse filter.

At the Kehl CHP plant, Valmet will modify the existing CFB boiler and deliver equipment to add paper sludge and sewage sludge to the fuel portfolio of the plant. Sludge feeding systems, bottom and fly ash system upgrades, and modifications to superheaters will be supplied for the Kehl boiler.

Valmet is extending its versatile butterfly valve product range with Neles™ Q-Disc™, a new high-performance feature to help flow balancing in control valve applications. The launch complements the offering of the modular Neles™ Neldisc™ and Jamesbury™ Wafer-Sphere™ butterfly valve platform that was introduced to the market in June 2021.

“The modular butterfly valve range was developed to help our customers with their valve selection not only for typical application challenges, but also to solve the problems in complex process conditions,” says Taija Hämäläinen, Head of butterfly valve products at Valmet. “Q-Disc™ is specifically designed for control applications. One of its key benefits is that it helps to avoid oversized actuators for control valve packages, and thus provides a solution that is more cost and energy efficient. The Q-Disc™ feature offers our customers a best-in-class flow-balancing solution and excellent controllability to improve overall process efficiency,” Hämäläinen continues.

The Neles™ Q-Disc™ allows efficient flow balancing in demanding control valve applications. The new high-performance feature is available as a modular option for a wide range of Neldisc™ and Wafer-Sphere™ butterfly valves. Q-Disc also provides market-leading noise reduction capabilities.The Neles™ Q-Disc™ allows efficient flow balancing in demanding control valve applications.

Neles is now a Flow Control business line at Valmet.

A problem solver for challenging control valve applications

Q-Disc™ is a problem solver for challenging flow conditions. It can be utilized to avoid cavitation in low opening angles, and it also provides market-leading noise reduction capabilities – even up to 12 dB in certain flow conditions.

“Q-Disc™ also helps in optimizing the entire valve-actuator package by making it possible to reduce the impact of dynamic torque caused by the flow, providing improved reliability and efficiency for the overall process the valve is part of,” says Hämäläinen.

Q-Disc™ is available as modular option for a wide range of butterfly valves, and it can be used for a temperature range up to +600 °C. Visit www.valmet.com/flowcontrol to learn more about Q-Disc™.

To enhance predictive maintenance, Valmet is launching new reliability monitoring applications for fiber processing equipment. They are part of the Valmet Industrial Internet offering and provide powerful tools for fiber producers to secure equipment availability and to improve process performance.

“Many fiber production machines operate in extremely harsh environments, and we have had to design and build a robust system. Despite the challenging conditions, we have managed to develop a signal input that previously didn’t exist,” says Heikki Kettunen, Senior Manager R&D, Intelligent Rolls, Valmet. The monitoring system combines modern sensor, signal processing and data transfer technologies applied to fiber production processes.

One of the first commercial applications is Valmet TwinRoll Press Vat Temperature monitoring. The application monitors pulp flow distribution inside the press through temperature measurements and visualizes, for example, the situations when the press gets plugged and pulp flow is disturbed. This application can be used as a standalone input to monitor press plugging or it can be connected to Valmet’s extensive TwinRoll Press performance monitoring systems to secure the overall reliability and washing efficiency of the press.

Valmet TwinRoll Press and a temperature map of the vatValmet TwinRoll Press and a temperature map of the vat

Another new application is Valmet Feeder Rotor Position Monitoring. To maintain an optimal steady state in the continuous cooking process, low- and high-pressure feeders must provide a stable chip flow in the digester feeding line. The monitoring system visualizes feeder adjustments, identifies impending problems, and supports operators with more accurate adjustments for successful chip feeding.

Modular system design, scalability and connectivity set the path to improved process performance and equipment reliability

Valmet reliability monitoring applications can be installed as a standalone device for single equipment monitoring. “However, this modular platform has been designed with the possibility to expand, which means additional signal inputs can be added, and a connection with other customer systems like mill DCS can be established. These features enable a transition to more comprehensive process reliability and performance improvements,” says Juha Ruotsi, Global Technology Manager, Valmet Rolls and Workshop Services.
