Andritz has received an order from Metsä Tissue to modernize and upgrade the existing DIP line at the Metsä Tissue mill in Mänttä, Finland, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The new DIP line is to supply the furnish for all three tissue machines at the Mänttä mill and will process medium- to high-quality recycled paper grades to be used as raw material for production of various tissue products. Andritz will upgrade the pulping process with a new detrashing system – comprising a FibreGuard Detrasher, a FibreWash Drum, and a Detrashing Pump – to increase pulp quality through early removal of non-disintegrated reject materials.
In the three-stage coarse screening process, three new screens – type ModuScreen F and TC – with the latest slotted screen baskets and an AhlCleaner RB will be installed to ensure efficient removal of coarse contaminants at minimum fiber loss.
Metsä Tissue is part of the Metsä Group, one of the largest forest industry groups in the world. The Mänttä mill has approximately 400 employees and produces toilet tissue, household towels, paper tissues, industrial tissue rolls, and greaseproof paper for baking and cooking.
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, tissue, and cardboard.
