International technology Group ANDRITZ has officially launched its new tissue machine for textured tissue, the “PrimeLineTEX”, enabling customers to produce textured tissue of a quality superior to dry crepe and very close to structured (TAD) tissue, while at the same time achieving significant cost savings.

PrimeLineTEX is available with widths of 5.6 or 2.8 m and produces high-quality tissue for towel and sanitary applications. The machine offers up to 25% fiber savings compared to dry crepe and consumes up to 50% less energy than a TAD machine. The PrimeLine TEX is substantially shorter in length than other market solutions and uses only one additional fabric instead of two. Furthermore, the PrimeLineTEX machine can switch between production of textured and dry crepe tissue within a much shorter time than comparable solutions.

As a turnkey supplier, ANDRITZ can offer the complete textured tissue production line, including stock preparation, pumps, and the automation system.

“Our new PrimeLineTEX tissue machine enables customers to produce high-quality tissue close to TAD but with substantially reduced investment and operating costs. It is available to all markets worldwide, without any restrictions. This new machine offers profitable advantages for our customers,” says Klaus Blechinger, Vice President Tissue at ANDRITZ.

PrimeLineTEX – FEEL THE DIFFERENCE

The ANDRITZ tissue pilot plant in Graz, Austria – the PrimeLineTIAC – is currently configured as a PrimeLineTEX machine and now offers customers the opportunity to test and develop their future textured tissue. The first paper samples will be available during the Tissue World Milan trade show from March 25 to 27, 2019 at the ANDRITZ booth, F680.

With the new PrimeLineTEX machine, ANDRITZ once again confirms its strong position as one of the global market leaders for the supply of complete tissue production lines and the right partner for innovative solutions.

The PrimeScreen X builds on the success of more than 5,400 globally installed ANDRITZ pressure screens in stock preparation applications and offers additional and innovative key benefits to our customers.

  • Top-feed stock inlet. The top-down design takes advantage of gravity to remove heavy contaminants quickly and minimize wear on rotor and screen basket. Top-down also improves the removal of light rejects, preventing the accumulation in the feed area, which again extends the life of wearing components.
  • New PrimeRotor and foil design. The PrimeScreen X can be equipped with the new PrimeRotor, which improves screening efficiency and reduces energy consumption by up to 25%, compared to a competitive screen in a comparable application. The PrimeRotor foils are interchangeable with any other ANDRITZ foils and the rotor could be installed in any screen type available on the market.
  • Easier maintenance. The design of the new rotor attachment and basket fixing results in reduced downtime, as maintenance and replacement of rotor and basket is quick and easy.
  • Enhanced geometry. The optimized screen basket height-to-diameter ratios comply with the requirements of different furnishes and applications, helping to reduce the thickening factors and leading to a better control of fiber loss.
  • Versatile in application. The PrimeScreen X is suited to all screening applications independent of the raw materials.

Wolfgang Lashofer, Senior Vice President and Global Division Manager of Paper, Fiber and Recycling Division at ANDRITZ: “Our new PrimeScreen X reduces energy consumption significantly and improves performance of our customers’ plants, thus meeting exactly market demands”.

The tissue production line is equipped with the ANDRITZ PrimeControl automation system for a high-performance production process. For the very first time, ANDRITZ has supplied a multi-motor drive (MMD) system with active line modules (ALM). The ALMs are designed for feeding energy back into the grid as a renewable energy solution, they offer low line harmonics that meet the demands of IEEE 519, and they enable stable operation of the motor, even with irregular power supply systems. All the tissue machine MMDs are powered from a common DC-busbar as are the approach flow and the air ventilation systems at times. The ANDRITZ LV motors are installed from fiber preparation to the tissue machine auxiliary system.

The scope of supply also included the complete stock preparation plant with approach flow system, fiber recovery and broke handling. The system features the ANDRITZ ShortFlow concept, an overall and compact process design that significantly reduces the number of single machines and storage volumes. Market bales are dissolved in a FibreSolve FSV pulper, which enables efficient slushing without damaging the fibers. TwinFlo refiners ensure balanced and efficient operation as well as superior fiber properties. Fiber recovery is mainly handled by a RotoWash, which achieves low solids content in the effluent water. Two further pulpers from the FibreSolve product family are part of the broke system.

The successful start-up confirms ANDRITZ’s strong position as one of the global market leaders for supply of complete tissue production lines, key components, and services.

Start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2019.

2018 12 03 100054The line processes eucalyptus and pine as raw material to produce unbleached and bleached market thermos ground wood pulp for local board and tissue producers. The new PHC (peroxide high consistency) bleaching stage will replace the existing spray-bleaching system in the dewatering machine and achieve highest brightness levels at lowest consumption of chemicals. A universally applicable and reliable ANDRITZ Twin Wire Press will be installed to dewater pulp to a dryness of up to 33%, followed by a high-consistency mixer to guarantee gentle blending of pulp and chemicals. In order to achieve even retention time in the bleach tower, a new ANDRITZ discharge system will ensure continuous and uniform pulp discharge.

A complete wet lap system and finishing line are also part of the scope of supply. After dewatering to a consistency of 45% on another ANDRITZ Twin Wire Press, a wetlap cutter and layboy (CLB) will operate fully automatically to form wet bale stacks. The finishing line consists of various pallet conveyors.

With this upgrade, Melhoramentos Florestal will be able to increase pulp production and, in particular, bleaching efficiency by means of a safe process with low energy consumption that will allow greater flexibility in producing various pulp grades – an important feature with which to approach a wider range of end customers.
