ANDRITZ has designed a broad range of high-consistency (HC) refiners to meet the demands of pulp, paper, panelboard, and recycle producers. At the top of the line in terms of throughput and motor power is the TX68 twin refiner.
CMPC Biopackaging – Boxboard and ANDRITZ have been collaborating successfully on ramping up mechanical pulp production for a number of years. The mill has gone from strength to strength, increasing capacity, to supply the demanding global market for high-quality, lightweight, folding boxboard.
An innovative concept – ANDRITZ Screen Booster – helps any mill upgrade the performance of its Screen Room. The Booster modules – Basket, Bearing Unit, Rotor, and Dilution Rotor – were created to enhance any of four critical components in a screening system. Any one, or all, of these upgrades can be easily installed on a screen as needed, regardless of the original equipment manufacturer.
Arauco’s MAPA project in Horcones, Chile is now in full swing; the earthmoving and foundation building has almost been completed and the civil works have started. ANDRITZ is a major supplier to the project and has been closely working together with Arauco, which will see the Chilean company become the third largest producer of eucalyptus pulp in the world. Start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2021.
Stora Enso’s Imatra Mill, located in eastern Finland, is one of the world’s largest producers of liquid packaging board. Now, thanks to the latest ANDRITZ flash drying technology, the mill is also able to fully utilize its BCTMP plant, which can now produce dry pulp for its internal use, as well as for the market.
The downturn in global manufacturing activity during the last year has created a difficult demand environment for many packaging grades. However, this is expected to be relatively short lived, since there are several factors that suggest better times are ahead, once the uncertainty on the manufacturing front eases. Global demand for packaging paper and board should grow 2.4% annually during the next five years, even if conditions remain challenging in 2020.
ANDRITZ is always exploring ways to take the ever-important issues of Health & Safety to new levels. We have recently launched the internationally recognized IOSH Managing Safely courses for all employees engaged in responsible positions within our pulp and paper activities around the globe.
