ANDRITZ to supply key components for testliner and corrugated medium machine to Sichuan F. Source Paper, China 


International technology Group ANDRITZ will deliver the paper machine approach, a save-all disc filter for fiber recovery, two PrimeFlow headboxes, and a PrimeDry Hard 2 roll calender for the new testliner and corrugated medium machine at Sichuan F. Source Paper, China. Start-up is scheduled for September 2013.

At a design speed of 650 m/min and a width of 4.9 m, the machine achieves an annual capacity of 150,000 t. The ANDRITZ headbox is of compact design and easy to install, which are decisive criteria especially for rebuilds. The PrimeCal Hard calender optimizes precalendering and final calendering of all paper and board grades. 

With this order, the PULP & PAPER business area, which manufactures its paper machine components in Europe and China, is further strengthening its position as one of the leading suppliers of machines and local services in China.
