A PrimeLineCompact tissue machine manufactured by the international technology group Andritz AG, Graz/Austria, has been delivered to Berli Jucker Cellox Ltd., Bangkok/Thailand, for their mill in Prachinburi/Thailand.
The new line has a design speed of 1,900 m/min and a paper width of 2.8 m. A PrimePress XT Evo shoe press installed there dewaters the web gently, but still achieves a far higher post-press dryness than conventional presses. The 16 ft. PrimeDry Steel Yankee is made entirely of steel, having an evaporation rate that is 10-15% higher than that of cast iron models, which results in 8-10% better machine performance. This combination – the latest shoe press technology and a steel Yankee – leads to a high drying capacity and achieves remarkable cost savings and operational flexibility as well as improved product quality. The entire line is equipped with an Andritz PrimeControl automation package, providing an optimized production process.
In addition, ANDRITZ supplied the stock preparation system with 2 lines in order to process both short-fiber and long-fiber pulp, with the option of adding recycled fiber. The lines also have an approach flow system and a dissolved air flotation (DAF) unit for fiber recovery. The water system installed is designed to minimize water consumption, thus ensuring highest efficiency and sustainable operation.
