Andritz Selected To Supply Roseburg Complete MDF Line

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, Ore. This investment is part of Roseburg’s major program to upgrade and expand its manufacturing operations. Start-up is planned for the third quarter of 2025.

With a capacity of 40 bdmt/h, the new line will process timber from Roseburg’s own timberlands. The state-of-the-art pressurized refining system featuring an S2064 M single-disc refiner and a 74 in. digester including C-feeder will be the centerpieces of the new fiber preparation line. An innovative 24 in. plug screw feeder will provide high dewatering efficiency ahead of the high-pressure zone to ensure low consumption of electrical and thermal energy.

“Superior fiber properties are crucial to manufacture technically advanced medium density fiberboard products. We are convinced that the well-proven refining technology from Andritz will meet our expectations and look forward to a successful partnership,” says Jim Salchenberg, Director of Engineering and Construction, Roseburg.
