ANDRITZ receives rebuild order from Kolicevo Karton, Slovenia


International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Kolicevo Karton, Slovenia, to rebuild its KM 3 wet section (wire and press section). The aim of the rebuild is to improve the quality and extend the grade range with GC-qualities (chromo board). Start-up is scheduled for December 2011.

The existing cylinder mold formers will be replaced by a multilayer Fourdrinier wire for top, back, and filler.
ANDRITZ’s PULP & PAPER business area is to supply three headboxes (PrimeFlow SW), the Fourdrinier wire section (PrimeForm SW) for three layers and the hybrid former (PrimeForm HB) for the filler dewatering. The existing press section will be complemented by a pick-up-roll for closed web run to the Kombi-press.
Kolicevo Karton is a member of Austrian Mayr-Melnhof Group, the largest producer of cartonboard in Europe and the leading manufacturer of coated recovered cartonboard worldwide.
