ANDRITZ has received the ninth order for a PrimePress X shoe press from Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing Ltd.
According to ANDRITZ, the new shoe press will help the paper producer save energy and further improve paper quality at its Best Eternity Recycle Technology mill in Banting, Malaysia.
The newly ordered shoe press will be installed in PM26, a containerboard machine that runs at a design speed of 1,000 m/min and produces high-quality Testliner of 70 – 160 gsm basis weight.
The PrimePress X shoe press will replace the existing conventional third nip in the center roll-based concept.
Equipped with an ANDRITZ PrimeRoll X and a PrimeRoll HV-Smart anti-deflection roll as well as an Impulse grooved shoe press belt, it will raise the line load to 1,250 N/mm and further increase the off-press dryness of the paper web. This will result in significant energy savings, improved machine runnability especially at lower basis weights, and enhanced final paper strength properties.
Start-up is planned for end of 2024.
