Andritz, Austria, has received an order from Sonoco-Alcore, Finland, to supply pulping and de-trashing equipment for the OCC stock preparation line at the Karhula paper mill. Startup is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.

The order includes the supply of a new Andritz FSR pulper rotor and a screen plate for the existing low-consistency pulper, a completely new detrashing system including a trash trap, a de-trashing pump, a detrasher FibreGuard, a new reject wash drum, field instruments, spare and wear parts, and a field service package.

After completion of the modification work by Andritz, the production capacity of the pulping system will be increased significantly, while at the same time energy consumption will remain unchanged, fiber loss will be reduced, and pulping efficiency improved.
