Sappi Saiccor to Install Andritz Baling Line with Bale Tracking

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The order comprises a new baling line with a capacity of 250 bales per hour, machines to connect two existing production lines, and bale tracking for the new and the two existing baling lines. Although there is limited space available, no new building is necessary due to the special space-saving design of the Andritz, Austria, baling line.
This order once again endorses the excellent cooperation between Sappi Saiccor and Andritz. Only recently, Andritz was awarded an order to supply a new headbox and rebuild the pulp dryer to increase capacity at the Saiccor mill.
Situated 50 km south of the port of Durban in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the Saiccor mill is one of the production facilities for Sappi Specialized Cellulose. The mill has the capacity to produce approximately 800,000 metric tons of elemental chlorine free (ECF) dissolving wood pulp (DWP) per annum, mostly for the export market. With the Saiccor mill, the Ngodwana Mill (also in South Africa), and the Cloquet Mill (North America), Sappi Specialized Cellulose is the world’s largest manufacturer of DWP.
