WIELAND worked with Yates Engineering to complete this industrial building. The project included the removal and replacement of in-house equipment including the wet end section (dewaters pulp) and the headboxes, which are designed to distribute a continuous flow of wet stock across the width and length of the machine as stock is deposited on the screen at constant velocities.
The project was designed by Yates Engineering. WIELAND began the project in late 2016 and completed the removal/replacement in March 2017.
