Description: Andritz has received a turn-key order from Northwood Tissue Ltd. to supply a new PrimeDry Hood and an air system for a tissue machine rebuild at the mill in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England.

Installation of the new Andritz gas-heated PrimeDry Hood HT (High-Temperature) will increase the drying capacity thanks to an impingement temperature of up to 530 °C. It will also enable a higher heat transfer rate, resulting in considerable energy optimization per ton of tissue produced.

Details: Andritz’s scope of supply includes installation work, supervision of mechanical installation, commissioning, and start-up. Guido LenziArea Sales Manager at Andritz Novimpianti, says «the new drying equipment will support our customer on its path towards more sustainable and cost- efficient tissue production. This is the second order of that kind that Northwood Tissue has placed with us, and we are looking forward to continuing our partnership».

David HarriesDirector at Northwood Tissue, adds «this investment is another milestone in improving carbon footprint and operational efficiencies. Andritz is a reliable partner for projects of this kind, and I look forward to the successful completion».

Start up: Start up is planned for the third quarter of 2024.
