International technology Group Andritz has successfully started up the TM5 tissue machine delivered to Guizhou Chitianhua Paper Industry Co., Ltd. at its location in Chishui, Guizhou Province, China, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The new PrimeLineST tissue machine, with a design speed of 2,000 m/min and a paper width of 5.6 meters, will produce high-quality facial wipes, toilet paper, and paper tissues based on bamboo furnish.
The machine is currently unique on the Asian market because it combines a high-performance Yankee with a steam-heated hood. The Yankee is made entirely of steel, has a diameter of 20 feet, and hence is among the largest in the world. It enables a high drying capacity and achieves remarkable cost savings compared to systems operated with gas because it uses steam.
The Yankee was manufactured at the Andritz plant in Foshan, China, which offers customers state-of-the-art manufacturing there, local field service, and quality management.
Andritz Pulp & Paper is a leading global supplier of complete plants, systems, equipment, and comprehensive services for the production and processing of all types of pulp, paper, tissue, and cardboard.
