International technology Group ANDRITZ has successfully completed start-up of the tissue machine PrimeLineTM W8 with steel Yankee supplied to Shandong Sun Paper, Yanzhou mill, Shandong province, China. The machine (PM27) has a design speed of 2,000 m/min and a width of 5.62 m. The Yankee, manufactured entirely of steel, has a diameter of 18 feet.
The turnkey supply included the complete stock preparation plant and the automation system as well as a re-evaporation and heat recovery system that recycles energy – in the form of steam – to the production process. In combination with the steel Yankee, this enables very energy-efficient and safe production.
Start-up of a second ANDRITZ tissue machine for Shandong Sun Paper (PM28) is scheduled for next year.
