ANDRITZ to upgrade wet section of special paper machines at Papierfabriek Doetinchem
PrimeFlow AT headbox with patented “accelerating tube” design.

ANDRITZ has received an order from Papierfabriek Doetinchem, Netherlands, to upgrade the wet sections of its PM1 and PM3 special paper machines. The start-ups are scheduled for 2022.

The aim of the investment is to improve the paper quality and provide the basis for a possible capacity increase. ANDRITZ will deliver ModuScreen HB dilution headbox screens, PrimeFlow AT headboxes with PrimeProfiler F dilution control, and pumps for both machines.

The proven ModuScreen HB ensures efficient and almost pulsation-free screening at low energy consumption thanks to the design following the inflow principle and to the screen’s unique accept chamber design.

The PrimeFlow AT headbox has a patented “Accelerating Tube” design with unique, nested trapezoid outlets. It features a rugged design structure, sheets in the nozzle for turbulence control, and capacity for high-resolution dilution profiling. This provides excellent jet quality, fiber dispersion and fiber orientation control over a wide range of grades and speeds.

The mill produces 70,000 t/a of paper for a broad range of applications. All products are made from first-class recycled fibers and can also be recycled again. They are biodegradable and standard PEFC certified.
