Andritz has successfully started up a new 950 t/d HERB chemical recovery boiler at JK Paper Limited, Unit: CPM at Fort Songadh, in the Tapi District of Gujarat state, India.
The boiler is designed to process hardwood black liquor and enables environmentally friendly and more energy-efficient operation compared to the direct-contact evaporator boiler currently used at the mill. This will significantly increase the mill’s pulp production and power-to-heat-ratio. The boiler also features a unique air system to minimize air emissions.
The scope of supply also included:
-Engineering for the entire system except for the civil works and the electrical and automation equipment
-Complete pressure parts
-Auxiliaries such as start-up oil burners, black liquor burners, smelt spouts and high-pressure steam valves and piping
-Safety-related system (SRS)
AS Mehta, President & Director of JK Paper Ltd, says: “The entire ANDRITZ team has worked tirelessly and zealously to see that the commissioning was trouble-free and fast. This has been achieved despite many constraints during the COVID-19 pandemic. Team JK Paper conveys its warmest gratitude to the ANDRITZ team for this wonderful support.”
