At the end of May 2019, international technology Group ANDRITZ started up the PM3 paper machine for speciality papers supplied to Zellstoff Pöls AG (part of the Heinzel Group), Austria, for the production of bleached kraft paper grades. This start-up took place two weeks before the date scheduled.

The ANDRITZ PrimeLine MG plant produces environmentally friendly MG paper for flexible packaging and release applications at the Pöls location.

With an annual capacity of 100,000 t, a design speed of 1,400 m/min. and a working width of 5.4 m, PM3 is setting a new benchmark in the production of these paper grades. The unique machine design enables the production of grades with low basis weight and highest strength with good printability and smoothness levels.

  The PM3 delivered by ANDRITZ produces high-grade paper for flexible packaging and release applications at the Pöls location. © ANDRITZ The PM3 delivered by ANDRITZ produces high-grade paper for flexible packaging and release applications at the Pöls location. © ANDRITZ

In terms of production and final product quality, PM3 exceeded all expectations right away in the first four weeks after start-up. The design capacity was achieved in stable operation within three months, and the majority of paper grades with basis weights between 22 and 52 g/m² were produced successfully.

The heart of the PrimeLine MG paper machine is the PrimeDry MG Steel Yankee, which is the largest of its kind worldwide with a diameter of 24 feet (7.315 m). ANDRITZ is thus breaking its own world record for size, established in 2013 when PM2 was started up successfully in Pöls with a 22-foot Yankee.

ANDRITZ supplied all process technologies, including the stock preparation line and approach flow system. One of the key components is the new ANDRITZ Vertical Screw Thickener (VST), which dewaters the pulp efficiently from a consistency at inlet of 3% to between 25 and 30% at the outlet.

Jürgen Rieger, Production Manager at Zellstoff Pöls AG, confirms, “We were very impressed with start-up and the first few months in operation that followed, just as we were with start-up of PM2 by ANDRITZ in 2013. Commencing operations ahead of schedule with a plant of this complexity is really exceptional.” Siegfried Gruber, overall Project Manager for PM3 adds: “Collaboration with the team from ANDRITZ was excellent, and this was also reflected in the outstanding PM3 start-up curve.”

Besides full responsibility for the technology, the ANDRITZ scope of supply also included the automation equipment, all process pumps, an extensive range of services, and the entire basic and detail engineering.

The mill was started up successfully at the end of 2012 and has achieved several production records since then. Metris OPP, which is part of ANDRITZ’s digital solutions, has been supporting Eldorado Brasil to reach these excellent results. ANDRITZ delivered the woodyard, complete fiberline, white liquor plant, and the new generation of pulp drying plants to Eldorado, including two parallel Twin Wire Former pulp machines, two airborne dryers, two cutter-layboys with 6,670 m working width, and four bale finishing lines.

These outstanding results are based on the combination of strong customer and supplier partnership, technology, and excellent planning and implementation.

Eldorado Brasil’s greenfield pulp mill achieves annual production of around 1.8 million mt of dried, bleached eucalyptus market pulp.

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.
