ANDRITZ has received an order from Dezhou Taiding New Material Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (Dezhou Taiding) to supply a P-RC APMP (Pre-Conditioning Refiner Chemical Alkaline Peroxide Mechanical Pulp) fiberline with a capacity of 400 t/d to the mill in Dezhou, Shandong, China. The new system will process poplar as raw material, and the fiber produced will be used on the company’s own paper machines for P&W (printing and writing paper) and board grades. Start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.
ANDRITZ’s scope of supply includes the key components for the entire mechanical fiberline, ranging from chip washing to the reject treatment system. Engineering, training, supervision of the mechanical installation, commissioning and start-up are also part of ANDRITZ’s scope.
The ANDRITZ MSD 400 Impressafiner ensures a high degree of chip delamination and thus contributes to uniform bulk density and optimal removal of moisture and extractives. The excellent material maceration and partial fiber delamination results in superior preconditions for chip impregnation, enabling maximum uptake of chemicals.
Pre-bleaching of chips as well as high-consistency refining by the ANDRITZ single-disc refiner S2070 will significantly improve pulp quality and keep the amount of shives as low as possible. The S2070 operates with a narrow and stable refining gap, which is especially important when producing P&W and board grades because enhanced fiber surface and efficient fibrillation have a considerable impact on fiber bonding. The swing-door refiner design ensures fast and easy change of refiner plates to save maintenance costs.
Numerous successful references for the ANDRITZ P-RC APMP systems worldwide were decisive in Dezhou Taiding placing the order with ANDRITZ.
Dezhou Taiding New Material Science and Technology Co., Ltd. was founded in 1998 and today is a joint-stock company serving the pulp production, papermaking and thermo-electricity business. It is one of the important players in the paper industry in the Shandong region, China.
