International technology group ANDRITZ is responding to the pulp and paper producers’ need to meet their process efficiency and environmental sustainability targets by launching a portfolio of intelligent instruments called the Smart Series at the Pulp & Beyond exhibition in Helsinki on April 11.

The portfolio includes a comprehensive range of measurements, analyzers, machine vision systems, condition monitoring solutions as well as robotics and mechatronics. They provide customers with an intelligent instrumentation foundation, paving the way for advanced process optimization.

and“With the introduction of the Smart Series, we are laying a solid foundation for an autonomous future, enabling our customers to significantly improve their process efficiency, reliability, safety and environmental sustainability – and ensuring these improvements are sustained over time," says Johanna Newcomb, Vice President, ANDRITZ Automation and Digitalization – Smart Solutions.

The Smart Series: Valuable Data - Predictive Maintenance - Enhanced Safety with Robotics

Emission and gas analyzers, process measurement and vision systems complement pulp and paper plants by providing a deeper understanding of the process and machine condition than possible before. With condition monitoring solutions for a wide range of process equipment and process areas, the Smart Series helps manufacturers move toward predictive maintenance, reducing unplanned downtime and extending the lifetime of equipment and components. Integrated robotics and mechatronics applications reduce the need of human intervention in hazardous areas of pulp and paper mills, reschedule regular tasks and contribute to optimizing maintenance.

The Smart Series complements and is integrated with Metris, ANDRITZ's digitalization platform that leverages the latest IIoT technologies to improve plant efficiency and profitability.

The use cases at the Pulp & Beyond exhibition include the autonomous log yard and robots for the recovery boiler area. More information will be shared at our booth A48 in exhibition room B6-3.

Shandong Huatai Paper has successfully started up a mechanical pulping line rebuilt by ANDRITZ at the mill in Dongying, Shandong Province, China. The rebuild not only increased the line’s capacity from 100,000 t/a to 300,000 t/a, making it the world’s largest mechanical pulping line for printing and writing paper production. It also considerably reduced the line’s energy consumption and increased its pulp yield and quality.

Wei Lijun, Director of Shandong Huatai Paper, says: “Thanks to the close cooperation between the teams of ANDRITZ and Shandong Huatai, we were able to start up the rebuilt line as scheduled. We are delighted about the massive increase in capacity as well as the additional benefits of the modernization. Energy consumption has dropped by about 15% and pulp quality has greatly improved. The amount of fiber shives has also gone down significantly. As a result, we are able to cut back on imported chemi-mechanical pulp in our raw material structure, which lowers costs and supports our environmental performance.”

ANDRITZ rebuilt the two high-consistency (HC) refiners and the screw presses, disc filters, and screens, and supplied new equipment for other process steps. The line now features the following technological highlights:

  • New PrimeMSD Impressafiner for optimum wood chip maceration and chemical impregnation
  • New Side-Entry Plug Feeder (SEPF) feeding system for constant and efficient HC refiner feeding
  • New DCS system as a future-oriented control system for the new fiberline
  • ANDRITZ Hydraulic Commander to improve the HC refiners’ operability and supply top quality fiber with lower energy consumption

ANDRITZ also provided the basic engineering and supervised the mechanical installation, commissioning, and start-up.

Shandong Huatai Paper Industry Shareholding is part of the listed Huatai Group, an important global player in the paper and chemical production sectors. The group is the world’s largest producer of newsprint and China’s largest producer in the chlor-alkali industry. In addition, the group makes all sorts of P&W paper, tissue, and specialty paper grades. The Huatai Group produces three million tons of paper and board as well as two million tons of chemicals per year.
