In close cooperation with its customer Jiangsu Bohui Paper Industry, international technology group Andritz recently achieved a milestone in high-consistency (HC) refining by processing a peak capacity of 1,300 admt/d of local hardwood chips per day and achieving sustainable production of 1,150 admt/d at the mill in Dafeng, China.
Andritz supplied two separate fiberlines with capacities of 1,500 admt/d and 750 admt/d, respectively, featuring the well-proven P-RC APMP (Pre-Conditioning Refiner Chemical Alkaline Peroxide Mechanical Pulp) technology for the new chemi-thermo-mechanical pulping system. With a total capacity of 2,250 admt/d, this system is the largest worldwide.
The world record was achieved with the Andritz TX68, the world’s largest HC refiner, as part of the second P-RC APMP system despite a defined single-line capacity of 750 admt/d. The TX68 refiner with an advanced feeding system is the centerpiece of the process and the latest innovation by Andritz in HC refining.
