New HERB recovery boiler from ANDRITZ at JK Paper

ANDRITZ has successfully started up a new 950 t/d HERB chemical recovery boiler at JK Paper Limited, Unit: CPM at Fort Songadh, in the Tapi District of Gujarat state, India.

The boiler is designed to process hardwood black liquor and enables environment-friendly and more energy-efficient operation compared to the direct-contact evaporator boiler currently used at the mill. This will significantly increase the mill’s pulp production and power-to-heat ratio. The boiler also features a unique air system to minimize air emissions.

The scope of supply also included:

  • Engineering for the entire system except for the civil works and the electrical and automation equipment
  • Complete pressure parts
  • Auxiliaries such as start-up oil burners, black liquor burners, smelt spouts and high-pressure steam valves and piping
  • Safety-related system (SRS)
