Andritz to rebuild PM2's drying section at Smurfit Kappa's Hoya mill in Germany

June 29, 2010 - 21:04

GRAZ, Austria, June 30, 2010 (Press Release) -The Pulp & Paper business area of international technology Group Andritz has received an order for rebuild and installation of the drying section of PM 2 at Smurfit Kappa's Hoya mill, Germany. Start-up is scheduled for February 2011.

The testliner and fluting machine in Hoya has a working width of 7.6 m at reel and a production speed of 1,100 m/min. Following the complete rebuild of the drying section, the drying wire tension will increase to 4.5 N/mm and the grouping will be changed. Four drying cylinders will be relocated from the after-drying section to the pre-drying section. The first single-tier drying section's PrimeDry ST web run will be enhanced with PrimeRun web stabilizing systems. The web run of the PrimeDry DT's double-tier drying group will be optimized with specially positioned guiding rolls. In the second drying group, high-vacuum boxes will be installed to improve web transfer from the cylinder. Additionally, a new drying hood will be supplied.

Andritz recently also received an order to supply a film press for Smurfit Kappa's Hoya mill.
