The concept Andritz has supplied provides high dewatering performance and production of corrugated base paper grades with a minimum of two-sidedness. Initial results after production start showed a significant improvement in paper formation and strength properties. The paper machine has a design speed of 1,200 m/min and a wire width of 3,180 mm; the corrugated base paper, with a basis weight range of 90 to 170 gsm, is produced from 100% waste paper.
‛Thanks to the presence of the Andritz experts on site, the rebuild went very smoothly. All systems have been started up successfully and we are very pleased with the components Andritz has supplied', says Modesto Cardella, Managing Director of Cartiere Modesto Cardella.
