International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Guangxi Chongzuo Lelin Forestry Development Co Ltd to supply a chip washing system and pressurized refining system for its production line near Chongzuo in Guangxi province, China. With a design capacity of 80 bone dry metric ton per hour, this will be the largest medium-density fibreboard (MDF) line ever installed worldwide.
The technological solution proposed by ANDRITZ covers a chip washing system, a chip bin discharger suitable for high-capacity discharge rates, a 28” plug screw feeder for highest dewatering efficiency, an 84” digester and discharger with the latest C-feeder concept as well as an S2074M refiner with a proven swing-door design.
Guangxi Chongzuo Lelin Forestry Development Co Ltd is part of the Lelin Group, headquartered in Nanning, Guangxi, which has been focusing on wood-based panel production for nearly 20 years. The company owns two biomass power plants as well as four wood-based panel manufacturing enterprises, which will have an annual fiberboard output of 1,300,000 m3 after the new line is completed.
