ANDRITZ to deliver wood chip system to Australian firm

news item image
ANDRITZ has received an order from Visy Pulp & Paper for a 243,000 m3 wood chip handling and storage system, including a Stacker Reclaimer RST360, for its mill in New South Wales, Australia.

Visy Pulp & Paper is a privately-owned packaging and resource recovery company, with more than 120 sites across Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand.

The ANDRITZ 360o Stacker Reclaimer is a complete system that stores and reclaims wood chips in a continuous 360o radial configuration. It operates on a true first-in, first-out chip management basis, ensuring homogeneous chip supply to the digester while at the same time offering a large storage capacity.

The discharge rate from the RST360 is automatically controlled, with the speed of the two metering screws in the hopper being adjusted to meet the capacity requirements of the pulping process. The equalising hopper discharge is continuously monitored with a belt scale. The RST360 is also delivered with a dedicated bypass to feed chips directly to the discharge hopper from the in-feed conveyor.
