ANDRITZ supplying tissue machine to Xuong Giang Paper Mill, Vietnam

Graz, Austria - International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order to supply a complete PrimeLineCOMPACT S 1300 tissue machine with stock preparation system to Xuong Giang Paper Mill, Vietnam, a subsidiary company of Bac Giang Import Export JSC.

The new line has a design capacity of 54 tons/d, a design speed of 1,300 m/min and a paper width of 2.85 meters. It will process virgin pulp as raw material to produce high-quality facial and toilet tissue as well as napkins. Start-up is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.

The stock preparation plant is split into separate short fibre and long fibre systems and also includes the approach flow system, fibre recovery and broke handling equipment, and pumps.

The tissue machine has a 12-ft. PrimeDry Steel Yankee, equipped with a steam-heated hood to ensure highly efficient drying and substantial energy cost savings compared to operations with a cast iron Yankee and gas-heated hood. The Yankee will be manufactured at the ANDRITZ Steel Yankee Business Center located in Foshan, China.

ANDRITZ will also supply a tailored automation system, including Prime- Control machine control system (MCS), distributed control system (DCS) and multi-motor drive (MMD) as well as the complete low-voltage motor control centre (LV MCC). Detailed engineering, erection work supervision and commissioning services for the high-performance production process complete the scope of supply.

The performance by ANDRITZ equipment already operating at the mill, successful cooperation during previous projects and responsive service capabilities were the decisive criteria for Xuong Giang Paper Mill to choose ANDRITZ as its partner once again. This ANDRITZ PrimeLineCOMPACT S 1300 is the third tissue machine to be supplied by ANDRITZ to the Vietnamese market in recent years.

Stock prep line to Kookil, China

ANDRITZ has also received an order from Kookil Paper (Zhangjiagang) Limited Corporation to supply a complete 305 bdmt/d stock preparation line including approach flow system, broke handling and fibre recovery to the mill in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, China.

Start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2021.

The new line will process NBKP (needle bleached kraft pulp) and LBKP (leaf bleached kraft pulp) market pulp bales to produce specialty paper for food packaging as well as photo and special printing paper.

The market pulp bales are dissolved in ANDRITZ FibreSolve FSV pulpers, which enable highly efficient slushing at low specific energy consumption. The innovative rotor design ensures optimum impact effect of the rotor and intensive friction within the pulp itself, however without damaging the fibres. Four ANDRITZ TwinFlo double disc refiners achieve superior fibre properties with regard to fibre length and fibrillation.

The approach flow system allows fast grade changes and will be equipped with an ANDRITZ Short- Flow de-aeration system, comprising four proven ModuScreen HBE headbox screens for stock and dilution water screening, a WW De-aerator for efficient air removal as well as a vacuum pump. The ShortFlow de-aeration system has an extremely small footprint and makes a significant contribution towards lower energy and investment costs.

The broke handling and a DiscFilter Saveall fibre recovery system complete the scope of supply.

Established in 2003, Kookil Paper is an important South Korean paper manufacturer producing in China and specializing in the production of different types of specialty papers.
