FOR SALE - Available Buildings and Space


Stock, Shipping, and Coating Departments

The stock system is designed to prepare the purchased fibers for the paper lines, collect and process loose and roll broke, and bale any extra groundwood on a wet lap machine (for sale to other interested parties).  These processes share the same building as the shipping department (building 109) in addition to buildings 94 and 110.  Six railcar lines and five truck docks were used for incoming pulps while also being used to ship the final product to the customer.
The fiber preparation processes includes automatic destacking/dewiring, fully automated pulping, single stage and dual stage refining, and large volume storage.  Three fiber types were processed in two repulping systems due to the highly automated repulping controls.  Roll broke was cut with a large guillotine style device and processed for use back on the paper machines.  When excess groundwood was available, it was processed through a twin-wire wet lap machine which manufactured stacks of pulp approximately 4’x4’x6’.

Shipping of the product originated at the roll wrapper in Building 94 on the machine floor level.  Finished paper rolls were lowered to the shipping level, upended to a horizontal elevated roll conveyor, and grabbed by clamp tractors for storage in the shipping building or loading in a truck or rail car.  The storage capacity for rolls in the shipping building is 2000 tons.  An additional 800 tons can be stored in Building 51, as well.
