Successful start-up of the ANDRITZ P-RC APMP line at Guangxi Sun Paper’s Beihai mill

ANDRITZ has successfully started up a chemi-thermomechanical pulping system delivered to Sun Paper for its mill in the city of Beihai, Guangxi, China.

The proven ANDRITZ P-RC APMP (Pre-Conditioning Refiner Chemical Alkaline Peroxide Mechanical Pulp) line features a capacity of 600 admt/d and processes eucalyptus wood chips as raw material to produce high-quality pulp for the production of printing and writing paper.

The scope of supply comprises all key equipment for the fiberline, including the following technological highlights:

  • Two-stage impregnation system with outstanding MSD Impressafiners for efficient pre-treatment and optimum chemical impregnation of wood chips prior to refining
  • High-consistency (HC) refining stage with two parallel ANDRITZ S2070 single-disc refiners for superior fiber properties and highest production flexibility
  • Low-consistency (LC) refining stage with ANDRITZ TwinFlo refiners to develop optimal pulp strength at lowest shive content
