Valmet recently made two successful Advantage DCT 200 tissue line startups at Lee & Man's tissue mill at Chongqing, China. The first machine in the startup queue was TM13, which started producing high quality paper right from the start on January 18. The second startup was on March 3, when just as good tissue paper hit the reel on TM15.
Valmet will start two more Advantage DCT 200 tissue production lines for Lee & Man during 2018. All at the same mill in Chongqing and with the same scope of delivery - complete tissue production lines featuring stock preparation systems and Advantage DCT 200HS tissue machines.
All nine machines are equipped with OptiFlo headbox and cast alloy Yankee cylinders. The Advantage tissue technology includes ViscoNip press, steam heated AirCap hood, WetDust dust system and a SoftReel P reel. Basic engineering and site services are also included in the delivery. Valmet's automation package is also included, with Valmet DNA machine and process control system (DCS), as well as Valmet IQ quality control system (QCS) and Valmet IQ Dilution Profiler.
The tissue machine has a width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,000 m/min. Each machine has the capacity to produce 60,000 tons of toilet and facial tissue per year. Lee & Man uses virgin wood pulp and bleached bamboo fiber as raw material.
Established in 1994, Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing Ltd has grown from a small company into a leading paper and pulp manufacturer. The company had a capacity of 7 million tons of container board, duplex board and tissue paper as well as 180,000 tons of pulp in 2014.
