ANDRITZ successfully starts up TM2 tissue machine for Ganzhou Hwagain Paper, China
Following start-up of the TM1 PrimeLine tissue machine, international technology Group ANDRITZ has also successfully completed start-up of the second tissue machine supplied to Ganzhou Hwagain Paper, China.
The scope of supply for TM 2 comprised the stock preparation plant for softwood, hardwood, and bamboo pulp, the 2-layer headbox with dilution control system, a shoe press, the wet dust removal system, a reel system, and the machine automation control system.
The shoe presses supplied for both tissue machines provide a higher after-press dryness, which reduces thermal drying requirements and lowers energy costs for the customer or can increase production levels at the same thermal energy consumption. The raw fiber consumption is also reduced, thus enabling the customer to obtain the same quality level in the final product by at the same time using lower-cost fibers.
