Andritz will supply a latest-generation FibreFlow drum FFD – including the complete feeding and dewiring system – for a new OCC line. The state-of-the-art Andritz pulping system ensures high fiber yield from various waste paper streams and reliable operation. The convincing results of specific trials on the industrial-scale drum pulper at the Andritz pilot plant in Graz, Austria, as well as Andritz’s experience in drum pulping were decisive for SAICA to place the order with Andritz.
The scope of supply also includes erection, start-up and commissioning, and training. Start-up is scheduled for September 2017.
