International technology group Andritz has received an order from Roseburg Forest Products Co. to supply a complete fiber preparation line for medium density fiberboard (MDF) production to its new mill in Dillard, Oregon, USA. This investment is part of Roseburg's major program to upgrade and expand its manufacturing operations. Start-up is planned for the Q3 2025.
With a capacity of 40 bdmt/h, the new line will process timber from Roseburg's own 243,000 hectares of timberlands. The state-of-the-art pressurized refining system featuring an S2064 M single-disc refiner and a 74" digester including C-feeder will be the centerpieces of the new fiber preparation line. An innovative 24" plug screw feeder will provide high dewatering efficiency ahead of the high-pressure zone to ensure low consumption of electrical and thermal energy - a major benefit of Andritz pressurized refining systems.
