Four Valmet supplied tissue lines has been successfully started up at Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing’s Chongqing mill in China within three months. The new lines, with a combined capacity of 240,000 tons of tissue which are designed for production of high quality tissue products with low energy consumption, were all producing sellable paper from the very start.
Previously Valmet has installed an Advantage DCT 200 tissue line at the same mill in 2015. All five machines are equipped with advanced tissue technology to reach high quality with lowest possible energy consumption.
The new tissue machines have a width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,000 m/min. They will have an annual production of 60.000 tons each of toilet and facial tissue per year, using virgin wood pulp and bleached bamboo fiber as raw material.
