In just two years, ANDRITZ has launched two completely new machine concepts for tissue producers to provide the very best in technology available for making specialty products with maximum efficiencies. The two concepts, the PrimeLineTEX and the PrimeLineVRT, are now available on the market and can be tested at the ANDRITZ tissue pilot plant in Graz.
The pulp making process hasn’t inherently changed over the years; however, ANDRITZ has had a lot of success with reinventing processes and technology in and around mills to increase capacity, improve quality, and cut operating costs. The LimeWhite-H White Liquor Disc Filter is another game-changing development.
