Andritz to supply largest pressurised refining system to China16 March 2020
International technology Group Andritz has received an order from Guangxi Guoxu Group to supply a pressurised refining system, including an S2064M refiner, for their MDF production line.
Thought to be the largest system ever installed in China, it will process 60% eucalyptus and 40% pine and hardwood as raw materials with a capacity of 45 bdmt/h. The established service availability of Andritz in China, with a service and spare part hub located in Foshan, were key in awarding the order.
“This project aims at the high-end fibreboard market, which requires excellent fibre quality. Andritz has a globally leading position in fibre preparation and a strong market share. In this project, Andritz introduced the advanced concept of pulping and papermaking into fibre preparation, and we believe that it will take the industry to a higher level in fibre quality and energy savings. We hope to work closely with Andritz to become the benchmark in the industry and provide society with high-end fibreboard products,” said Li Xiaobo, general manager of the Gouxu Group.
“Andritz refiners have a high market share in the world’s wood-based panel industry. We trust in their technology, products and services.”
