International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully improved performance of the pulp mill at Mondi Frantschach by implementing new advanced process controls.

The target was to reduce the variability of Kappa, an indication of the lignin content in the pulp, in order to run the process a step closer to its maximum specification limits. This measure leads to higher production efficiency in the mill because less wood is needed to produce the same amount of pulp.

As part of the optimization project, ANDRITZ Automation commissioned and fine-tuned three advanced process controls (APCs) in Mondi´s continuous cooking process. The controls implemented, including the chip level control for digester and impregnation vessel, the digester H-factor control (kinetic model for the rate of delignification in kraft pulping) and the blow-flow consistency control, were fully developed with Metris X – the distributed control system (DCS) developed by ANDRITZ Automation to simplify operational complexity, lower project risk, and improve plant performance. Metris X is a key application of the Metris UX Platform, a state-of-the-art digitalization platform that enables full functionality and support for industrial plants throughout their entire life cycle.

ANDRITZ’s scope of supply included the analysis of data correlated to Kappa, return of investment (ROI) calculations, an evaluation of the cooking process, instrumentation, and former Kappa control, performing of trials on the actual process, and the commissioning, start-up and fine-tuning of an advanced process control solution for Kappa stabilization.

The solution delivered proved better than the former system in all instances, showing that ANDRITZ Automation is capable of delivering the results promised.

Mondi Frantschach would like to point out that the fruitful working cooperation between the Mondi Frantschach team and ANDRITZ Automation was a key factor in this great achievement of further improving the complex kraft pulping process.

The pulp drying plant at Bracell’s “STAR” project in Lençóis Paulista, São Paulo, consisting of two identical pulp drying lines (L2A and L2B) supplied by ANDRITZ, has achieved new production world records.

On December 18, 2021, the L2A pulp drying line reached a total output of 4,672.5 air dry tons per day, which is a production world record on a single line. In terms of specific drying capacity, this corresponds to 456 tons per day and meter of working width produced on an ANDRITZ drying line for a sheet width of 10.24 meters.

Moreover, on December 18, 2021, the L2A and L2B pulp drying lines achieved a total of 8,897.4 air dry tons per day on both lines together, which is a new mill-wide capacity world record.

Both records were set during the first four months after start-up. This impressive performance was made possible by ANDRITZ’s leading and proven EvoDry pulp drying system, whose energy-efficient pulp drying is based on the high-capacity Twin Wire Former technology, includes airborne dryers, cutter-layboy and baling lines, and is equipped with the Metris DryQ smart pulp drying solution.

Bracell’s “STAR” project at the mill in Lençóis Paulista is one of the largest and most sustainable pulp mills in the world, meeting the highest environmental standards. It features two flexible, environmentally friendly hardwood fiberlines for a capacity of 2.6 to 2.8 million tons/year of bleached kraft pulp or 1.5 million tons/year of dissolving pulp made from sustainably cultivated eucalyptus.

These outstanding results are based on the combination of customer and supplier partnership, good plant management and technology as well as excellent planning and implementation.

International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully started up state-of-the-art and environmentally leading pulp production and chemical recovery technologies for Klabin’s Puma II line in Ortigueira, Paraná, Brazil.  

Pablo Cadaval, General Mill Manager of Klabin’s Puma Unit, says: “We are very satisfied with the way we were able to manage and finish the project and start our key equipment for the Puma II line together with ANDRITZ, despite the hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The ANDRITZ scope of supply included:

  • A wood processing plant with debarking and chipping line, which can process both eucalyptus (350 m3 sob/h) and pine (400 m3 sob/h), meaning that a log truckload of wood is emptied onto the line every ten minutes.
  • The HERBTM recovery boiler from ANDRITZ, which has a capacity of 3,300 tds/d with high steam parameters of 103 bar(a) and 502°C to maximize power generation. It is equipped with the autonomous Smart sootblowing control solution that combines Smart sensors (HEWI) and controls to ensure the cleanability period, a higher availability of the boiler, as well as greater operating safety.
  • A power boiler based on ANDRITZ EcoFluid bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) technology with a steam production capacity of 220 t/h. It is combined with the recovery boiler to form a “boiler island”, and some of the auxiliary equipment is shared between the two boilers. This provides savings in investment and operating costs.
  • A complete white liquor plant consisting of a recausticizing plant (5,000 m3/d) and an ANDRITZ LimeKiln (450 t/d) with a multi-fuel burner.
