By installing the new system, the quality of the newsprint pulp produced will be improved, fiber losses will be minimized, and power consumption further reduced. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2012.
ANDRITZ PULP & PAPER will deliver the FibreFlow drum pulper (type FFD350) to produce newsprint pulp, replacing an existing pulper in a deinking system. The new drum pulper will slush a mixture of recycled fibers from old newsprint and old magazines at a maximum feed capacity of 750 t/d.
