International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Dezhou Taiding New Material Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (Dezhou Taiding) to supply a P-RC APMP (Pre-Conditioning Refiner Chemical Alkaline Peroxide Mechanical Pulp) fiberline with a capacity of 400 t/d to the mill in Dezhou, Shandong, China.

The new system will process poplar as raw material, and the fiber produced will be used on the company’s own paper machines for P&W (printing and writing paper) and board grades. Start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.

ANDRITZ’s scope of supply includes the key components for the entire mechanical fiberline, ranging from chip washing to the reject treatment system. Engineering, training, supervision of the mechanical installation, commissioning and start-up are also part of ANDRITZ’s scope.

The ANDRITZ MSD 400 Impressafiner ensures a high degree of chip delamination and thus contributes to uniform bulk density and optimal removal of moisture and extractives. The excellent material maceration and partial fiber delamination results in superior preconditions for chip impregnation, enabling maximum uptake of chemicals.

Pre-bleaching of chips as well as high-consistency refining by the ANDRITZ single-disc refiner S2070 will significantly improve pulp quality and keep the amount of shives as low as possible. The S2070 operates with a narrow and stable refining gap, which is especially important when producing P&W and board grades because enhanced fiber surface and efficient fibrillation have a considerable impact on fiber bonding. The swing-door refiner design ensures fast and easy change of refiner plates to save maintenance costs.

Numerous successful references for the ANDRITZ P-RC APMP systems worldwide were decisive in Dezhou Taiding placing the order with ANDRITZ.

Dezhou Taiding New Material Science and Technology Co., Ltd. was founded in 1998 and today is a joint-stock company serving the pulp production, papermaking and thermo-electricity business. It is one of the important players in the paper industry in the Shandong region, China.

International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Cartiere del Polesine to rebuild an existing OCC line including reject treatment at the mill in Adria, Italy. In addition to all main process components, ANDRITZ will also install two newly developed PrimeScreens X for primary-stage fine screening as well as fractionation. Start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2020.

The fluting and testliner production line will have a line capacity of 400 bdmt/d and process AOCC (American Old Corrugated Container) as well as special waxed waste paper as raw material.

An ANDRITZ FibreFlow drum pulper with extended pulping and screening section will slush the difficult-to-handle raw material in order to ensure gentle pulping, high fiber yield, and reliable operation. Specific trials on the industrial-scale drum pulper at the ANDRITZ Stock Preparation Pilot Plant in Graz, Austria, confirmed future pulp properties and operating characteristics in advance.

Different types of ANDRITZ ModuScreen pressure screens as well as two next-generation PrimeScreens X will be part of the screening processes. The innovative top-feed concept of the new screen was decisive for Cartiere del Polesine to order ANDRITZ’s new screening technology. The top-down design takes advantage of gravity to remove heavy contaminants quickly and minimize wear on rotor and screen basket. Top-down also improves the removal of light rejects, preventing their accumulation in the feed area, which again extends the life of wearing components.

The scope of supply also includes reject treatment, basic engineering and site services.

Cartiere del Polesine is a major player in the Italian and European containerboard industries and focuses on sustainable and innovative production. Four paper machines in two different mills produce around 300,000 tons of containerboard per year.
