Complete front-end system


ANDRITZ Panelboard - complete lines, components and service

Full-range capabilities

We supply complete front-end packages ranging from debarking, chipping, screening, to chip handling as well as from washing to pressurized refining systems that are extremely reliable and energy-efficient. We also produce individual machines, including laboratory-scale systems. Our machines utilize any species of wood (in the form of wood chips, sawdust, shavings, and so on) or annual fibers, such as bagasse and bamboo.

In addition to technical leadership, we support each customer with responsive service, replacement parts, and upgrades to existing machines.

Extremely low electrical and thermal energy consumption with best performance is the driving factor for the design of each individual machine in the system and the process.

Enhancing fiber quality with economical use of resources

In order to maintain technical leadership, ANDRITZ panelboard continues to focus on new innovations and energy and steam savings.

ANDRITZ concentrates on reducing the energy costs and environmental impact of our processes and technologies in order to achieve high operational efficiency. Several process improvements to ensure low consumption of electrical and thermal energy have been developed to further optimize the refining process. These technologies may be part of new systems, but can also be implemented easily in existing pressurized refining systems.
