19 July 2017


International technology group Andritz has received an order from S
Kijchai Enterprise PCL (SKN), Huay-Yang, Thailand, to supply another pressurised refining system for MDF production line II at the mill in Rayong, Thailand. Start-up is scheduled for June 2018. This will be the second line supplied by Andritz to this company which took place in April 2012.

The pressurized refining system for this second line has a capacity of 30bdmt/h and will process 80-100% rubberwood and 0-20% fruitwood as raw material.

Predominant features of Andritz pressurised refining systems are highly efficient pre-steaming, excellent dewatering in the plug-screw feeder, and low electricity and thermal energy consumption by the overall system. This is the 13th line to be supplied by Andritz to Thailand, five of which were delivered within the past two years alone.
