Successful start-up of the tissue machine with an 18-foot steel Yankee was at Zhejiang Jingxing Paper in Pinghu city, Zhejiang province, China. The machine was supplied by Andritz.

The steel Yankee with head insulation, in combination with a steam-heated hood, enables a high drying capacity at minimized energy costs. Start-up of a second Andritz tissue machine for Zhejiang Jingxing Paper has been scheduled before the end of this year.
