Sept. 14, 2020 - ANDRITZ announced that it has received an order from Guangdong Hengan Paper Co., Ltd. (Hengan) to supply four 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 a PrimeLineCOMPACT M 1600 with a design speed of 1,700 meters/min. and a working width of 3.65 meters. All of the machines are equipped with a PrimeFlow step diffusor headbox.
In addition, the 18 ft. 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.
ANDRITZ noted that Hengan has thirteen ANDRITZ tissue machines in operation, with the four new machines scheduled to start-up in the fourth quarter of 2021.
