Valmet to Supply Process Automation and QC Systems to Jiangxi Taison Paper in China

Valmet DNA distributed control systems

April 11, 2017 - Valmet will supply Valmet DNA automation systems and Valmet IQ quality control systems to Jiangxi Taison Paper's four new tissue machines, TM7, TM8, TM9 and TM10, at its greenfield mill in Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province, China.

Valmet's delivery will include Valmet DNA distributed control systems (DCS) to control the four tissue machines and Valmet IQ quality control systems (QCS) with scanning measurement sensors.

According to Valmet, one of the QCS highlights is Valmet IQ Fiber Measurement, which simultaneously measures fiber weight and moisture. It was specially developed to replace traditional nuclear basis weight sensors. The combination of the two measurements in one sensor — fiber weight and moisture — considerably reduces investment and life-cycle costs as well as eliminates the need for nuclear licenses, safety training and handling procedures.

Jiangxi Taison Paper Ltd., a subsidiary of Taison Group, is located in Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province. It will build a new plant with an annual production capacity of 480,000 tons of tissue paper. The new hygiene product lines will be capable of making 1.8 billion sanitary pads and diapers per year.

Valmet is a leading global developer and supplier of services and technologies for the pulp, paper and energy industries. To learn more, please visit: www.valmet.com
