Andritz: Hybrid technology for natural based ...

Hybrid technology for natural based wipes


Drylaid and wetlaid components can be used for the processing of natural fibers and creating new product features for the large biowipes market.

The international technology group Andritz AG, Graz/Austria, offer fully engineered production lines integrating the right equipment for so-called carded-pulp (CP) and carded-pulp-carded (CPC) lines: cost-efficient, flexible, and reliable. These processes combine the benefits of 2 technologies: wetlace and spunlace. The neXline CP is equipped with state-of-the-art stock preparation, including approach flow and fan pump, opening and blending, carding including chute feed, a wetlaid forming unit, hydroentanglement including optional patterning, filtration unit, dewatering, through-air drying and end-of-line equipment. In order to create a 3-layer wipe, an additional card can be added to the carded-pulp process. This opens the door to fiber mixtures with even higher added value and offers high and stable functions while using only biodegradable raw materials. A pulp layer in the middle is surrounded by the carded, e.g. viscose, layers and hence offers additional properties.
