The international technology group Andritz AG, Graz/Austria, has received an order from Guangdong Hengan Paper Co., Ltd. (Hengan), Dongguan, Guangdong/China, to supply 4 tissue machines to its new mill in Yunfu, Guangdong/China, for the production of high-quality facial, toilet, handkerchief and napkin tissue grades made of virgin market pulp.
Each of the new tissue machines is of the type PrimeLineCompact M 1600 with a design speed of 1,700 m/min and a working width of 3.65 m. All of them are equipped with a proven PrimeFlow step diffusor headbox for superior formation quality. The 18 ft. (approx. 5.5 m) PrimeDry Steel Yankee together with the high-load suction pressure roll and canopy hood ensure high drying capacity at reduced energy consumption compared to conventional drying systems. The scope of supply also includes an under-machine pulper.
The technical characteristics of this compact solution for tissue production will significantly reduce steam and electric power consumption in the production process and minimize operating costs, thus resulting in low maintenance costs.
