With a design capacity of 80 bdmt/h, Andritz says this will be the largest MDF line ever installed worldwide.

Guangxi Chongzuo Lelin Forestry Development Co Ltd – part of the Lelin Group, headquartered in Nanning, Guangxi – owns two biomass power plants as well as four wood-based panel manufacturing enterprises, which will have a total annual fibreboard output of 1.3 million m3 after the new line is completed.

The technological solution proposed by ANDRITZ covers a chip washing system, a chip bin discharger suitable for high-capacity discharge rates, a 28” plug screw feeder for highest dewatering efficiency, an 84” digester and discharger with the latest C-feeder concept as well as an S2074M refiner with the proven swing-door design.
