High production capacity, low power consumption: ANDRITZ to supply drum pulping system for Taishan Gypsum’s paper mill, China


International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Taishan Gypsum for delivery of a FibreFlow drum pulper to its paper mill in Tai’an City, Shandong Province, China, which produces high-quality mask paper for gypsum boards. Start-up is scheduled for March 2014.

The low energy consumption, the exceptionally high availability, and the low operating costs of the drum pulper (capacity: 800 tons per day) were decisive in the award of this order. The scope of supply also includes engineering, erection work supervision, start-up, training, as well as a spare and wear part package. The raw material treated by Taishan Gypsum consists of one half LOCC (Local Old Corrugated Container) and one half AOCC (American Old Corrugated Container). The ANDRITZ FibreFlow drum pulper is used for slushing all kinds of recycled paper grades – slushing of paper and separation of contaminants are handled in one single unit. 

Taishan Gypsum is the leading Chinese manufacturers of high-quality gypsum boards and frame series for interior decoration. The company, with a production capacity of 1.2 billion square meters of gypsum boards per year, serves the domestic market, and also exports to other countries, such as the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, India, and Russia.
