Hebei Yihoucheng, China, has successfully started up its Andritz (Graz, Austria) PrimeLineCOMPACT tissue machine—the first of its kind in China—with a steel yankee dryer. The machine has a design speed of 1,650 m/min and a width of 2.85 meters. The yankee, manufactured entirely of steel, has a diameter of 3.65 meters.

According to Tian Yuwei, GM at Hebei Yihoucheng, "the smooth startup was further confirmation that we chose the right partner in Andritz. The energy-efficient drying and excellent operating safety of the yankee are particularly impressive."

The tissue machine and components (the order also included supply of the complete stock preparation plant, automation, and drives) were manufactured at Andritz production sites in Europe and China.
