The Catalyst Paper Powell River mill is a leading producer of high-quality uncoated mechanical specialty papers. 

Allnorth was hired by Catalyst Paper to provide detailed engineering services for the modification of the vacuum system for the No 11 paper machine. This included new vacuum piping between the No 11 paper machine vacuum pump (631-100) and first press Uhle box with valving and blinding off vacuum pump No. 12.

The scope of work included piping isometrics, tie-point drawings, mark-up of existing piping drawings, revising existing piping specifications, a construction Work Package, various instrumentation diagram’s, and various project lists.

Using the Leica C10 Laser scanner, Allnorth was able to design the new piping and new tie-points without piping or equipment interference.
