 Only a few weeks after start-up, the 5.6m wide PrimeLine™ W6 tissue machine that was delivered by Andritz to Arkhbum Tissue Group LLC in Vorsino (Kaluga region), Russia, reached a speed of 2,000 m/min with a grammage of 16 g/m² and is now producing high-quality facial, toilet, napkin, and kitchen towel grades made of 100 percent virgin pulp (bleached hardwood and softwood pulp).

Irina Galakhova, chairman of the board of directors, Arkhbum Tissue Group, said: “We are extremely satisfied with our products – and so are our customers. We appreciate the high quality and softness. In addition, we achieve remarkable cost savings compared to systems with conventional presses and Yankees.”

The Andritz tissue production line features a Papillon refiner in the stock preparation plant to achieve superior fiber properties at low energy consumption. The tissue machine’s steel Yankee and Andritz’s latest shoe press technology enable a high drying capacity and operating flexibility. The re-evaporation system installed brings energy back into the production process, thus enabling additional savings.

Andritz delivered the PrimeLineTM W6 tissue machine together with the stock preparation and approach flow system, heat recovery re-evaporation system, hall ventilation and heating, automation, and electrification.

Andritz Pulp & Paper provides equipment, systems, complete plants and services for the production of all types of pulp, paper, board and tissue. The technologies and services focus on maximum utilization of raw materials, increased production efficiency and sustainability as well as lower overall operating costs. Boilers for power production, flue gas cleaning plants, plants for the production of nonwovens and panelboard (MDF), as well as recycling and shredding solutions for various waste materials also form a part of this business area.
