Austria-headed international technology major Andritz AG has recently announced that received an order from Vinda Personal Care (Guangdong) Co., Ltd. to supply a stock preparation system to feed its four tissue machines at the mill in Yangjiang, Guangdong, China.
Vinda Personal Care (Guangdong) Co., Ltd., part of the Vinda Group, is one of the top four tissue producers in China. The Vinda Group provides high-quality hygiene products and services and operates four core business segments with the key brands Vinda, Tempo, Tork, TENA, Dr. P, Libresse, VIA, Libero, and Drypers.
Andritz will supply a stock preparation system to feed its four tissue machine at the mill in Yangjiang, Guangdong. The new system the value of which has not been disclosed will have a capacity of 200 bdmt/d and will process a mixture of NBKP (Needle Bleached Kraft Pulp), LBKP (Leaf Bleached Kraft Pulp) and bagasse as raw material. Start-up is scheduled for the second for the third quarter of 2021.
Andritz will install the complete system, with equipment for low-consistency (LC) pulping, high-consistency (HC) refining, approach system, and broke handling. The LC pulping system comprises a FibreSolve FSV pulper and a high-density (HD) cleaning system for optimum slushing of the raw material.
In order to achieve optimum processing of the mixture of annual and short fibers, the customer opted for a 120 bdmt/d HC refining system for the tissue production line. The combination of an Andritz Pulp Screw Press and an HC refiner, type CDIPL, will enable superior fiber properties at low energy consumption.
Andritz has supplied over 20 stock preparation systems to the Vinda Group. According to Andritz the successful business cooperation as well as the excellent performance of recently installed technologies were the decisive criteria to place the order with Andritz.
