Runtech Systems has received a repeat order from DS Smith Paper Ltd, Kemsley Mill, for a RunEco vacuum system rebuild on PM4. In the rebuild, existing liquid ring pumps will be replaced by four EP600 Turbo Blowers. Delivery also includes detailed engineering, EcoDrop and EcoSep water separators. With the rebuild, PM4 targets significant energy savings and reduction in CO2 emissions.
“We’ve had a successful collaboration with Runtech Systems in improving the energy efficiency of our PM6 and PM3, and we are looking forward to now achieving great results with PM4. Rebuilding the systems contributes to DS Smith’s ambitious target to reduce Scope 1, 2 and 3 Green House Gas emissions by 46% on an absolute basis by 2030, compared to 2019 levels, and reach Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050,” said Ben Jennings, Mill Manager, DS Smith.
“It has been a great pleasure to work with DS Smith Kemsley and now do the rebuild of the PM4 vacuum system. Based on our benchmarking data, Kemsley’s PMs are record-breaking machines for power-efficiency. The investment in the Turbo Blowers on PM3 and PM6 has also reduced CO2 emissions significantly, and this project with PM4 will further contribute to meeting DS Smith’s ambitious carbon reduction targets,” said Jussi Lahtinen, Sales Director, Runtech Systems.
