Valmet will supply an Advantage DCT machine including the flexible ViscoNip press and an extensive automation package to Turkish tissue producer Hayat Kimya. The company has decided to invest in a second machine at their mill in Yelabuga in Tartaristan, Russia, to meet the increasing demand for their high-quality tissue products. The new line will add 70,000 tons of tissue to Hayat Kimya’s current production of facial, toilet and towel tissue.
Previously Valmet has delivered five Advantage DCT 200TS tissue production lines to Hayat, which have started up at Hayat’s mills in Turkey 2010 and 2015, Iran 2013, Russia 2014 and Egypt 2016. Valmet also conducted an extensive rebuild of their TM1 machine in Turkey during 2015.
The Valmet Advantage DCT 200 TS new tissue machine TM7 will have a width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,200 m/min.
The raw material to be used in the tissue production will be virgin fiber and the new production line is optimized to save energy and to enhance the quality of the final product.
The order also includes upgrade of Hayat Kimya’s Advantage ViscoNip presses, to next generation, for TM1, 5 and 6.
