ANDRITZ, an international technology group, has received an order from S. Kijchai Enterprise PCL (SKN), a leading international producer of particle board and medium-density fibreboard (MDF) based in Huay-Yang, Thailand, to supply another pressurised refining system for their MDF production line II for their mill in Rayong, Thailand, scheduled for June 2018.

In addition to successful operation of the first line ANDRITZ delivered in April 2012, other key factors in the decision-making process also included the exceptional and internationally tried and tested technology and processes that ANDRITZ offers worldwide for the panelboard industry. Predominant features of the ANDRITZ pressurised refining systems are highly efficient pre-steaming, excellent dewatering in the plug-screw feeder, and low electricity and thermal energy consumption by the overall system. All in all, this is the thirteenth line ANDRITZ will supply to Thailand, of which five were delivered within the past two years alone.
