Shandong Sun Paper Starts up Second Andritz Tissue Machine

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Andritz, Graz, Austria, has successfully started up the second tissue machine with a steel yankee at Shandong Sun Paper in China. After completing commissioning work in less than three weeks, full production operations began immediately and saleable tissue was produced continuously.

The PrimeLineTM W8 machine (PM 28) at the Yanzhou mill, Shandong Province, has a design speed of 2,000 m/min. and a width of 5.62 meters. The yankee, manufactured entirely of steel, has a diameter of 18 ft. 

The turnkey supply included the complete stock preparation plant and the automation system as well as a re-evaporation 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. 
Following successful startup of PM 27 in July last year, Sun Paper is now operating two Andritz tissue machines.
