ANDRITZ PrimePulping LC system for lowest fiber loss in slushing and reject removal

GRAZ, NOVEMBER 18, 2021.  International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Alizay Papier SASU to supply a complete OCC line – including a reject treatment system – with a capacity of 1,400 bdmt/d to the mill in Alizay, France. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2022.

ANDRITZ’s scope of supply comprises the entire equipment from pulping to the storage tower and features several technological highlights:

  • PrimePulping LC system with innovative design for lowest fiber loss in slushing and reject removal
  • Multi-stage fine screening with PrimeScreen X screens for highest efficiency and low power consumption
  • PrimeFilter D disc filter with bagless sectors offering significant benefits in terms of thickening performance, energy consumption and maintenance
  • State-of-the-art reject treatment with ADuro shredders and Reject Compactors processing the rejects from pulping and coarse screening as well as the pulper rags. A space-saving, automatic rag operation process will feed the rags directly into an ADuro C primary shredder. This eliminates the need for intermediate storage and transport and thus saves space, time and manpower.

ANDRITZ will also provide full detailed engineering as well as start-up and commissioning services.

Alizay Papier SASU is part of the VPK Group, a major international packaging supplier with more than 6,500 employees in over 70 plants operating in 20 countries.
