International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Klabin to supply energy-efficient and environmentally leading key equipment and processes for Klabin’s Puma Capacity Increase II project in Ortigueira, Paraná, Brazil.

Start-up is scheduled for the second quarter of 2023.

ANDRITZ’s delivery for the hardwood Fiberline capacity increase for the Puma I line includes modernization of the cooking, washing, screening and bleaching processes, which will increase the capacity from 3,742 adt/d to 4,080 adt/d. The order also includes a new ANDRITZ DD-WasherTM (drum displacer washer), which will ensure production of high-quality pulp, maximum operating time, and low chemical consumption, thus minimizing the environmental impact. The DD-Washer supplied to Klabin will be the 400th such washer to be sold worldwide.

In 2016, ANDRITZ delivered two fiberlines for the Klabin Puma I pulp line. The original capacity was 3,500 adt/d, but this increased to the current level of 3,742 adt/d after the first capacity increase project that was started up in December 2020. © ANDRITZIn 2016, ANDRITZ delivered two fiberlines for the Klabin Puma I pulp line.

Pablo Cadaval, General Mill Manager of Klabin – Puma Unit, says: "We selected our reliable partner ANDRITZ to supply a new DD-Washer, a washer whose capabilities are already very familiar to us, especially its flexibility for higher production rates and low chemical consumption in bleaching.”

Rodrigo Vendramini, Project Manager of Fiber, Water and Effluent Lines at Klabin, continues: “We were pleased to hear that our newest DD-Washer is ANDRITZ’s 400th DD-Washer sold. In fact, we also have ANDRITZ’s 300th DD-Washer sold in our Puma I line.”

ANDRITZ will also deliver the sixth eucalyptus debarking and chipping line (with a capacity of 350 msob/h) to this site, thus completing the existing ANDRITZ Wood Processing Plant in the Puma II line. This order is part of the second phase of the Puma II project and includes an ANDRITZ debarking drum, which provides excellent debarking results with very low wood losses, and a horizontally fed HHQ-Chipper (EXL model), ensuring high capacity without compromising on chip quality.

This order once again confirms the excellent business relationship between ANDRITZ and Klabin. ANDRITZ has supplied major pulp production technologies and process equipment for Klabin’s Puma I and Puma II pulp lines in Ortigueira. Currently, a complete biomass gasification plant is being supplied to the Puma II line. ANDRITZ is also in the process of supplying the world’s first sulfuric acid plant for a pulp mill, producing commercial-grade, concentrated sulfuric acid. It will serve Klabin’s Puma I and Puma II pulp lines once completed.

International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully started up a new reel as part of the KM2 board machine rebuild at Knauf Petroboard, in Kommunar, Russia.

The KM2 – with a basis weight range from 100 to 320 g/m2 – has a design speed of 700 m/min and a working width of 4.26 m. It has a maximum capacity of 155,000 t/a for production of gypsum board and uses 100% wastepaper as raw material.

 The rebuild includes a new PrimeReel system with new reel spools, drives and controls, ensuring consistent paper quality from the first to the last wrap during reeling. The new reel reduces the volume of rejects previously generated and enables the use of larger reel diameters, thus resulting in less frequent reel spool changes.

ANDRITZ rebuilt the complete wet section (comprising the approach flow system and wire section) as well as the complete electrical drives (MMD) of KM2 in 2018.

Yuriy Mikhaylov, general director of Knauf Petroboard AG, says: "We are really impressed by the work of the ANDRITZ team. Despite the very challenging conditions due to the Covid pandemic, the start-up ran smoothly, and the rebuilt machine went into operation before the scheduled date.”

Knauf Petroboard, a member of the international Knauf Group, has a leading market position in Russia and the CIS countries in producing packaging board as well as gypsum board, which is used in the production of plasterboard.

International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully started up the main equipment forming part of an innovative mechanical pulping line supplied to hygiene and health company Essity in Mannheim, Germany.

The new system features a capacity of 100 bdmt/d and processes 100% wheat straw to produce bleached straw pulp for the mill’s own tissue production. As raw material for pulp production, the facility mainly uses FSC- and/or PEFC-certified thinning and waste wood from the area surrounding the mill. Essity has now also been using plant-based agricultural residue from local farms for the production of high-quality tissue since the new equipment was started up. The innovative process uses less water and energy and can thus be considered a breakthrough in sustainable tissue manufacturing. The plant in Mannheim is the first of its kind in Europe and the first in the world to operate on a large scale.

Dr. Martin Wiens, Factory and Project Manager for the new installation, says: “This is a big step for Essity – and the paper industry as well. Essity is the first company in the tissue industry to process agricultural residue on an industrial scale.” He adds: “We have developed unique processing technology that does not exist anywhere else in the world. The design is purely based on a small pilot installation and, together with ANDRITZ, we have managed to implement the concept in a little over two years. That is really impressive!”

ANDRITZ supplied most of the main equipment, from technology for cleaning, screening, dewatering and bleach tower discharge to refining. Mechanical installation, commissioning and start-up supervision were also part of the scope of supply.

In the run-up to the project, several trials for dewatering, refining, bleaching and the mixing behavior of wheat straw as well as extensive tissue production trials were conducted in ANDRITZ’s fiber preparation pilot plants and the PrimeLine TIAC – Tissue Innovation and Application Center.

Markus Pichler, Vice President for Mechanical Pulping Systems at the ANDRITZ Paper, Fiber and Recycling Division, congratulates: “I’m impressed by this future-oriented approach and regard Essity as a pioneer in the use of alternative fibers for tissue production. The new facility sets benchmarks for the industry.”

Essity is a globally leading hygiene and health company and operates four tissue mills in Germany. With an annual capacity of 283,000 tons produced on five paper machines and 23 converting lines, the Mannheim mill is the industry’s largest production facility in Europe.
