International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Vajda Papír to supply a complete tissue production line for its mill in Dunaföldvár, Hungary. Start-up is scheduled for March 2018.
The order comprises a PrimeLineCOMPACT VI tissue machine with steel Yankee and shoe press as well as a complete stock preparation system, including pumps, automation, electrification, all auxiliaries, and services.
The stock preparation system includes an FSV pulper, which is equipped with the latest design of energy-saving rotor, three proven ANDRITZ double-disc TwinFlo refiners, a ModuScreen CP protection screen with rotating cylinder, and a low-energy ModuScreen HBE headbox screen.
The ANDRITZ tissue machine has a design speed of 2,200 m/min and a width of 2.74 m. It is equipped with a PrimePress XT Evo, the latest ANDRITZ shoe press technology. PrimePress XT Evo ensures both improved dewatering and better product quality, thus reducing the need for thermal drying. As a result, the energy demand of the tissue machine with shoe press is substantially lower. Perfect edge control is provided by a new, patented control system. The 16 ft. Yankee is made entirely of steel, thus enabling safe operation and efficient drying.
This order once again confirms ANDRITZ’s excellent position as one of the global innovation drivers in the tissue market. ANDRITZ has numerous successful reference plants across the globe, thus demonstrating its strong market position as one of the world market leaders for supply of complete tissue production lines, key components, and services.
