March 5, 2021 - ANDRITZ said that it has successfully started up the tissue production line delivered to Berli Jucker Cellox's mill in Prachinburi, Thailand.
The PrimeLineCOMPACT tissue machine has a design speed of 1,900 metres/minute and a paper width of 2.8 metres. 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 two lines in order to process both short-fiber and long-fiber pulp, with the option of adding recycled fiber.
The line was started up successfully under very challenging conditions due to the Covid pandemic. A key part of this success is thanks to Metris - the ANDRITZ digitalization platform. Metris effectively reduced personal contact by making use of remote functionalities. Remote assistance by ANDRITZ specialists enabled a straightforward commissioning-to-start-up phase and, in addition, ensures constant optimization of production processes, operator troubleshooting and decision support.
