ANDRITZ wet lap systems

Superior systems for wet pulp storage

A modern wet lap system for wet pulp storage consists of an ANDRITZ Twin Wire Press for pulp dewatering, an ANDRITZ wet sheet cutter, and an ANDRITZ baling line (or a pallet conveyor line for wet pulp storage).

Advantages at a glance

  • Maximum dry content for minimum transport weight
  • Gentle dewatering facilitates re-pulping
  • Suitable for all types of pulps – even for difficult-to-handle sheets
  • Accurately cut and positioned sheets facilitate handling and wet pulp storage
  • Full automatic operation – no continuous operator supervision required

ANDRITZ Twin Wire Press

ANDRITZ is a leading supplier of Twin Wire Presses. A single press can dewater pulp from pumping consistency up to 50% dry content. This type of press is particularly suited for wet lap systems, but can also be used prior to flash dryers or for wet pulp storage in piles.

Advantages at a glance

  • Compact design
  • Minimal moving parts
  • Low specific energy consumption
  • High throughput
  • Excellent filtrate quality
  • Reliable, fully automatic operation
  • Proven in nearly 600 installations worldwide

Operation

The pulp suspension is distributed evenly across the working width in a headbox. The pulp dewatering is performed without any vacuum between two moving, endless wires in three parts of the machine: a patented floating wedge zone, the tri-formance zone, and the press zone.

ANDRITZ wet sheet cutter

The ANDRITZ patented wet sheet cutter design ensures exact positioning of the wet sheets – even with difficult-to-handle sheets and large formats.

Advantages at a glance

  • Exact, automatic sheet positioning
  • Gentle sheet handling for accommodating large formats, high basis weights, and low sheet strengths
  • Simple fan for vacuum generation

Operation

After dewatering, an electro-mechanical tail cutter and a pneumatically actuated flap transfer the trimmed pulp mat automatically to the belt guide system. High-pressure jets slit the sheet lengthwise where required. Exact cross-cutting is ensured by a knife roll working against a stationary knife. Fragile pulp sheets (mechanical or recovered fibers) are piled up via a vacuum belt.
