ANDRITZ has received an order from North Pacific Paper Company (NORPAC) to supply a major expansion of the OCC line for its mill in Longview, Washington, USA. Start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.
ANDRITZ will install a FibreFlow drum pulper, type FFD450EE, as well as various fiber cleaning and reject handling equipment to upgrade the existing OCC line and expand the mill’s production of lightweight recycled packaging papers. The stock preparation system features a capacity of 1,200 bdmt/d and processes a mix of OCC and mixed waste as raw material.
The FibreFlow Drum pulper is a complete pulping system in one unit and ensures best accept quality thanks to the gentle pulping concept and efficient removal of coarse contaminants with minimum fiber loss. The new drum pulper was ordered in advance, recently arrived at the port of Longview and is currently being moved to the NORPAC mill.
North Pacific is an independent paper company delivering a broad range of high-quality papers to customers across the United States and around the world. NORPAC makes high-quality and environmentally conscious copy paper as well as printing and publishing stock.
