Andritz launches PrimeLineTIAC Tissue Innovation and Application Center in Graz, Austria

Posted March 15, 2018
International technology Group Andritz has officially launched the world’s most modern research center for tissue, the PrimeLineTIAC Tissue Innovation and Application Center, in Graz, Austria.

The Tissue Innovation and Application Center comprises a complete, state-of-the-art tissue production line, including laboratory facilities for tests and trials to develop new products and processes in the tissue sector. It is available to tissue producers and suppliers, research and development companies, and universities.

Thus, customers and developers can conduct tests and trials under many different conditions, for example to optimize fibers for a specific product, improve product qualities, increase dryness, and reduce energy consumption. The impact of variables such as stock preparation, chemicals, vacuum, machine clothing, pressing, and drying with hot air and steam can all be measured and evaluated accurately.

The PrimeLineTIAC has its own complete stock preparation line together with the approach flow system. Many different kinds of pulp can be processed in one production line, which is split into a separate short fiber and a long fiber line. In addition, all units are available in small industrial scale, creating an excellent environment for best possible fiber treatment and tests according to the individual needs of customers and products.

With a design speed of 2,500 m/min and a sheet width of 600 mm, the machine can be operated with either a suction press roll or a shoe press, a regular CrescentFormer or a vertical CrescentFormer, and with a 16 ft. steel Yankee or two 14 ft. TAD drums.
The Metris PrimeControl E automation hardware and software developed by ANDRITZ provides utmost flexibility in monitoring and controlling the various machine configurations as well as the stock preparation system, including alarm management, online documentation, and eco-monitoring for example.

Andritz Pulp & Paper is a leading global supplier of complete plants, systems, equipment, and comprehensive services for the production and processing of all types of pulp, paper, board, and tissue.
