GRAZ, Austria , April 25, 2022 (press release) –

International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Papierfabriek Doetinchem, Netherlands, to upgrade the wet sections of its PM1 and PM3 special paper machines. The start-ups are scheduled for 2022.  

The aim of the investment is to improve the paper quality and provide the basis for a possible capacity increase. ANDRITZ will deliver ModuScreen HB dilution headbox screens, PrimeFlow AT headboxes with PrimeProfiler F dilution control, and pumps for both machines. 

The proven ModuScreen HB ensures efficient and almost pulsation-free screening at low energy consumption thanks to the design following the inflow principle and to the screen’s unique accept chamber design.

The PrimeFlow AT headbox has a patented “Accelerating Tube” design with unique, nested trapezoid outlets. It features a rugged design structure, sheets in the nozzle for turbulence control, and capacity for high-resolution dilution profiling. This provides excellent jet quality, fiber dispersion and fiber orientation control over a wide range of grades and speeds.

The mill produces 70,000 t/a of paper for a broad range of applications. All products are made from first-class recycled fibers and can also be recycled again. They are biodegradable and standard PEFC certified.
