Andritz has received an order from Asia Symbol (Guangdong) Paper to supply a complete tissue production line - from stock preparation to a double-width tissue machine (TM13), including automation - for energy-efficient production of high-quality grades at its mill in Jiangmen Xinhui, China. Start-up is planned for the end of 2022.
The tissue machine of the type PrimeLineTM W 2000 will have a design speed of 1,900 m/min and a width of 5.65 m for the production of paper towels, kitchen rolls, napkins, handkerchiefs, and facial tissue in the range of 11 to 42 gsm.
It features a PrimePress XT Evo shoe press that dewaters the web gently, but still achieves a far higher post-press dryness than conventional presses. The line force and/or shoe tilt can be adjusted in a very flexible way in order to optimize the product quality and reduce consumption of drying energy. In addition, an 18 ft. PrimeDry Steel Yankee with a steam-heated PrimeDry Hood ST for energy- and cost- efficient drying will be installed.
The order also includes the stock preparation system with LC (low-consistency) refiners for superior fiber properties, the approach flow system with a ModuScreen HBE headbox screen for pulsation-free screening, as well as undermachine pulping.
Asia Symbol (Guangdong) Paper is part of the RGE Group, a global player that focuses on sustainable pulp and paper production.
