International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Visy Pulp & Paper for a 243,000 m3 chip storage and handling system, including a Stacker Reclaimer RST360, for its Tumut mill in New South Wales, Australia.
The ANDRITZ 360° Stacker Reclaimer is a complete system that stores and reclaims wood chips in a continuous 360° radial configuration. It operates on a true first-in, first-out (FIFO) chip management basis, ensuring homogeneous chip supply to the digester while at the same time offering a large storage capacity. ANDRITZ has several references for RST360 Stacker Reclaimers worldwide.
The discharge rate from the RST360 is automatically controlled, with the speed of the two metering screws in the hopper being adjusted to meet the capacity requirements of the pulping process. The equalizing hopper discharge is continuously monitored with a belt scale. Added to these features, the RST360 is delivered with a dedicated bypass to feed chips directly to the discharge hopper from the infeed conveyor.
Visy Pulp & Paper is a leading, privately owned packaging and resource recovery company, with more than 120 sites across Australia, New Zealand and Thailand and trading offices across Asia, Europe and the USA.
