International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Sudama Wood Panel to supply a pressurized refining system for its new fiberboard production line in Uttarakhand, India.

Start-up is scheduled for the first quarter in 2024.

Aniket Bansal, Director at Sudama says: “ANDRITZ's refiner technology is well-known for delivering not only excellent fiber quality but also outstanding performance, reliability, and easy maintenance. That combined with the company’s strong track record, particularly in Asia, made us choose ANDRITZ as a partner for our new production unit.”

The pressurized refining system from ANDRITZ will process 100% hardwood for producing high-quality medium density fiberboard (MDF). Designed for a capacity of 25 tons per hour, the system will include a 20” plug screw feeder and an innovative 54-1CP disc refiner to achieve superior fiber quality at reduced electrical and thermal energy consumption.
