Vajda Papír invests into tissue production expansion at its mill in Dunaföldvár, Hungary. Start-up is scheduled for March 2018.
According to the announcement, the company placed an order for a complete production line with Andritz. The order comprises a PrimeLineCOMPACT VI tissue machine with steel Yankee and shoe press as well as a complete stock preparation system, including pumps, automation, electrification, all auxiliaries, and services.
The stock preparation system includes an FSV pulper, which is equipped with the latest design of energy-saving rotor, three proven Andritz double-disc TwinFlo refiners, a ModuScreen CP protection screen with rotating cylinder, and a low-energy ModuScreen HBE headbox screen.
The Andritz tissue machine has a design speed of 2,200 m/min and a width of 2.74 m. It is equipped with a PrimePress XT Evo, the latest Andritz shoe press technology. PrimePress XT Evo ensures both improved dewatering and better product quality, thus reducing the need for thermal drying. As a result, the energy demand of the tissue machine with shoe press is substantially lower. Perfect edge control is provided by a new, patented control system. The 16 ft. Yankee is made entirely of steel, thus enabling safe operation and efficient drying.
