International technology group Andritz has received an order from Wisewoods Co., Ltd to supply another pressurized refining system – the second from Andritz – to its mill in Phetchaburi, Thailand. Start-up is scheduled for the first half year in 2024.
The new fiber preparation system will feature a capacity of 30 tons per hour and process rubber wood for production of high-quality MDF (Medium Density Fiber) board.
Visarut Palarit, Deputy Director Wisewoods says: “Our first line from ANDRITZ has been showing excellent performance since its installation in 2016. The new line will enable us to enlarge our production capacity significantly. In parallel, ANDRITZ’ technology ensures that we receive top fiber quality – a precondition for our MDF board to deliver lighter color and smoother surface properties.”
