Robyn Smith - President/Publisher: Len Prazych - Vice President The scope of supply also includes boiler cleaning devic- es, pressure part upgrades, material handling equipment, air/flue gas system upgrades, and environmental equip- ment to enable the mill to meet the highest environmental standards. Once completed, Domtar’s Kingsport Mill will become one of North America’s premier lightweight con- tainerboard facilities, being able to produce over 600,000 tons of recycled linerboard and corrugated medium annu- ally. This capacity will make the machine the second larg- est in North America for recycled containerboard. Andritz To Supply Boiler Conversions To Domtar’s Packaging Plant In TN Andritz Inc., a member of international technology Group Andritz, has been selected by Domtar Corporation to pro- vide equipment and technical services for conversion of a power boiler and a recovery boiler at their Kingsport paper mill, in Kingsport, Tennessee. This mill will be converted into Domtar’s first packaging facility. As part of this state-of-the-art conversion, the Kingsport Mill needed to repurpose its steam generation equipment. Andritz will convert an existing recovery boiler into a nat- ural gas-fired power boiler with back-up fuel oil capabil- ity by supplying the main equipment, including low NOx burners and associated fuel and air systems. Andritz will also provide equipment for the mill to modify an existing bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) power boiler so that it can accommodate a change in fuels from wood and sludge firing to corrugated cardboard (OCC) rejects, natural gas, and fuel oil firing.
