Andrtiz said that SCA Tissue North America has placed an order for a second tissue machine for its Barton, Alabama mill.
Andritz will supply the wastepaper feeding and dewiring equipment, a complete 350 t/d MOW (mixed office waste) deinking system, the approach flow system, water clarification, and a new 5.5 meter PrimeLine™ crescent former tissue machine.
The machine will have a design speed of 2000 m/min and will consist of two-layer headbox with dilution control, a crescent former with patented pick-up system and a T-rib Yankee dryer, Andrtiz said
The Barton mill currently manufactures 100,000 tons of tissue each year. With the new machine, annual production will increase to 170,000 tons.
Start-up of the new machine is planned for the summer of 2008.
