Case Study: Largest feasible single container module manufactured
Altona corrugated board factory relies on its own steam supply
Altonaer Wellpappenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG in Tornesch, a member of the Panther Packaging Group, is further expanding its site.
The production steam for the state-of-the-art corrugator was still provided by the neighboring paper mill until summer 2018. In the meantime, a self-sufficient mobile Hagelschuer steam boiler plant takes over the supply. The largest possible compact unit in just one GH container module measures 15 m in length, 4 m in width and it is 4.20 m high.
All system-relevant components had to be housed and arranged in a very small footprint to allow for easy technical support of the system and maintenance.

The installed steam boiler produces 8 t/h at a maximum operating pressure of 18 bar. The plant has a feedwater tank with degasser and a control cabinet with electrical distribution. The exhaust gases are discharged via the 21 m high stainless steel stack.
