ANDRITZ has successfully started up the MDF line II supplied to Panel Plus MDF, based in Bangkok, Thailand, for its mill in Hat Yai. The pressurized refining and chip washing system supplied by ANDRITZ is the centerpiece of the line. It has a capacity of 30 bdmt/h and is characterized by low specific energy consumption as well as excellent reliability.
The chip washing system using the ANDRITZ sedimentation technology is the first of its kind to be delivered to Thailand and will be used mainly for sand removal. The scope of supply also included a maintenance-friendly ANDRITZ C-Feeder that ensures minimum energy consumption, higher system stability, and longer refiner plate lifetime.
This successful start-up once again demonstrates ANDRITZ’s strong position – with over ten references now – in Thailand’s panel board industry.
Panel Plus MDF Co. Ltd, established in 1990, is a leading producer of particle board, medium-density fiberboard, and melamine-faced papers for the production of wear and water resistant panels.
