ANDRITZ to modernize two OCC lines for Pabrik Kertas, Indonesia

ANDRITZ to modernize two OCC lines for Pabrik Kertas, Indonesia
ANDRITZ FibreFlow drum pulper – high availability and excellent performance in fiber slushing and separation of coarse contaminants.

ANDRITZ has received an order from PT. Pabrik Kertas Indonesia to rebuild two existing OCC (old corrugated containers) lines for its mill in Surabaya, Indonesia.

The modernization will considerably improve pulp quality to produce more competitive products with higher operational efficiency and reduced energy consumption. The capacity of both lines will be increased to 500 t/d, utilizing 100% imported OCC as raw material.

Suryomurti, Chief Financial Officer, PT. Pakerin, says: “The objective of rebuilding the two lines is to expand capacity and enhance product quality in response to the growing market demand. We were impressed by ANDRITZ’s innovative technology, which will help us reduce our carbon footprint. This convinced us to select ANDRITZ as our trusted partner for this strategic investment.”

To meet the unique characteristics of PT. Pakerin’s raw material, ANDRITZ will install two of its patented FibreFlow drum pulpers, which will replace the existing LC (low consistency) pulpers. The FibreFlow drum pulper provides efficient and gentle pulping of low-grade furnish, transforming it into high-quality pulp while minimizing fiber loss. The technology also excels in removing coarse contaminants, and the single drum machine design ensures optimal availability and requires minimal maintenance, resulting in very low operating costs.

The ANDRITZ scope of supply also comprises a new two stage high-density cleaning system and a new coarse screening setup, which includes:

  • PrimeScreen X screens for higher screening efficiency, lower power consumption and minimized wearing due to latest top feed design and
    a highly efficient de-flaking screen paired with a slotted FibreWash Drum ensuring minimum fiber losses and superior removal of rejects.
  • Additionally, ANDRITZ will provide the basic engineering, erection supervision, commissioning, startup assistance and training. Startup is scheduled for September 2024.

This modernization further enhances ANDRITZ’s strong position as supplier of recycled fiber technology in Southeast Asia.
