ANDRITZ has received an order from Vinda Personal Care (Guangdong) Co., Ltd. to supply a stock preparation system to feed its four tissue machines at the mill in Yangjiang, Guangdong, China. Start-up is scheduled for the second to third quarter of 2021.
The new system will have a capacity of 200 bdmt/d and will process a mixture of NBKP (Needle Bleached Kraft Pulp), LBKP (Leaf Bleached Kraft Pulp) and bagasse as raw material. ANDRITZ will install the complete system, with equipment for low-consistency (LC) pulping, high-consistency (HC) refining, approach system and broke handling.
The LC pulping system comprises a FibreSolve FSV pulper and a high-density (HD) cleaning system for optimum slushing of the raw material. In order to achieve optimum processing of the mixture of annual and short fibers, the customer opted for a 120 bdmt/d HC refining system for the tissue production line. The combination of an ANDRITZ Pulp Screw Press and an HC refiner, type CDIPL, will enable superior fiber properties at low energy consumption.
The outstanding cooperation between the two companies started over 17 years ago, and ANDRITZ has since then supplied over 20 stock preparation systems to the Vinda Group. The successful business cooperation as well as the excellent performance of recently installed technologies were the decisive criteria that persuaded the customer to trust in ANDRITZ once again.
