Austria's Andritz to supply fibre preparation systems to Naturheld

Oct '21
Andritz has received orders from Naturheld, to supply two fibre preparation systems for its new production line in Grafenwöhr, Germany. With this project, Naturheld is also entering the insulation material sector. The start-up of the project is scheduled for the second half of 2022. Austria’s Andritz offers systems and services for various industries.

Andritz’s scope of supply comprises two lines with a state-of-the-art pressurised refining system, each featuring a capacity of up to 10 t/h and including some technological highlights. There is a plug screw feeder for optimum dewatering prior to refining and advanced wear protection for longer screw lifetime. It has a C-Feeder for constant feeding of wood chips to the HC refiner and stable operation over the entire capacity range. It also comes with 44-1CP refiner for production of high-quality fibres with lowest possible energy consumption, Andritz said in a media statement.

The systems will process a mixture of spruce and pine wood chips from Naturheld’s own wood processing plant, producing premium fibre material for flexible and hard insulation board as well as for blown-in insulation.

“The meetings with Andritz headed in the right direction from the very beginning! The clear focus on ecological and economical production and the technical competences convinced us that we should enter the insulation material sector with Andritz as our partner. Their experience in machine construction and customer-oriented approach to collaboration were both impressive and enjoyable,” Robert Friedl, general manager of Naturheld said in a media statement.

“We are very impressed by Naturheld’s holistic approach, such as their regional wood supply or highly energy-saving and zero-wood-waste production process. We are looking forward to seeing Andritz technology providing top performance in Naturheld’s new insulation material production facility,” Michael Rupp, vice president for panel-board systems in the Andritz paper, fibre, and recycling division said.
