AFT delivering new approach flow system to Smurfit Kappa Mexico

AFT is set to deliver a complete approach flow system to the Smurfit Kappa board mill in Cerro Gordo, Mexico. Representatives from the mill visited AFT’s Varkaus Service Center to tour the facility and inspect their equipment – including a new MaxFlow™ HB 2200 headbox screen and POMp™ degassers. “Everything we saw was great. We really liked the quality of manufacture, welding, and design”, remarked Alberto Monterrubio, Process Engineer (Projects & Engineering) for Smurfit Kappa Mexico.

In addition to the new approach flow system, AFT is also supplying system engineering, conceptual 3D layout and piping, and on-site services.  Designed with ease of maintenance, process optimization, and reduced power consumption in mind, all AFT products are supported by a global team of process and service experts.

AFT is pleased to have been selected for this project and looks forward to bringing the new equipment online safely and efficiently for Smurfit Kappa, a leading global provider of sustainable packaging solutions.
