Oct. 4, 2022 - ANDRITZ has received an order from Bracell SP Celulose Ltda. to supply four PrimeLineTM W 2000 tissue production lines to its mill located in Lençóis Paulista, São Paulo.
The value of the order was not disclosed.
The new tissue machines will have a design speed of 2,100 m/min and a working width of 5.68 meters. They are equipped with fully cantilevered shoe presses for gentle dewatering and easy maintenance and 18 ft. steel Yankees with steam-heated hoods for energy-efficient drying.
The new tissue mill will be self-sufficient in steam and electricity consumption for the drying process.
ANDRITZ's scope of supply — on EPC basis including civil construction — includes the stock preparation systems that will process slush pulp from Bracell's own pulp mill, rewinders and roll handling, as well as roll covers, machine clothing, shoe press belts, and additionally more than 100 units of high-efficiency process pumps.
The new lines will produce household paper, such as toilet paper, napkins, handkerchiefs, towels and facial tissue.
Start-up is scheduled for 2024.
