(PRESS RELEASE) GRAZ, 9-Jul-2020 — /EuropaWire/ — Austrian plant engineering group ANDRITZ has announced it received an order from Chinese Vinda Personal Care (Guangdong) Co., Ltd. for stock preparation system to be used in their four tissue machines at the mill in Yangjiang, Guangdong, China.

The new system will have a capacity of 200 bdmt/d and will process a mixture of NBKP (Needle Bleached Kraft Pulp), LBKP (Leaf Bleached Kraft Pulp) and bagasse as raw material. ANDRITZ will install the complete system, with equipment for low-consistency (LC) pulping, high-consistency (HC) refining, approach system and broke handling.

The LC pulping system comprises a FibreSolve FSV pulper and a high-density (HD) cleaning system for optimum slushing of the raw material. In order to achieve optimum processing of the mixture of annual and short fibers, the customer opted for a 120 bdmt/d HC refining system for the tissue production line. The combination of an ANDRITZ Pulp Screw Press and an HC refiner, type CDIPL, will enable superior fiber properties at low energy consumption.

The outstanding cooperation between the two companies started over 17 years ago, and ANDRITZ has since then supplied over 20 stock preparation systems to the Vinda Group. The successful business cooperation as well as the excellent performance of recently installed technologies were the decisive criteria that persuaded the customer to trust in ANDRITZ once again.

Vinda Personal Care (Guangdong) Co., Ltd., part of the Vinda Group, is one of the top four tissue producers in China. The Vinda Group provides high-quality hygiene products and services, and operates four core business segments with the key brands Vinda, Tempo, Tork, TENA, Dr. P, Libresse, VIA, Libero and Drypers.
