8 June 2018
Andritz has received an order from Arkhbum Tissue Group LLC to supply a tissue machine PrimeLineTM W6-XT, including stock preparation, automation, and electrification, for its mill in Vorsino, Kaluga region, Russia, for the production of high-quality facial, toilet, napkin, and kitchen towel grades made of 100% virgin pulp. Start-up is scheduled for the 3Q 2019, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The new PrimeLineTM W6-XT tissue machine has a design speed of 2,100 meters per minute and a paper width of 5.6 meters. The combination of a 16 ft. steel Yankee and the latest PrimePress XT shoe press technology enables a high drying capacity and achieves remarkable cost savings and operational flexibility compared to systems operated with conventional presses and cast Yankee dryers.
The scope of supply also includes stock preparation with an approach flow system. The centerpiece of the line is the Andritz Papillon refiner that treats fibers gently in the cylindrical refining zone in order to achieve superior fiber properties at low energy consumption.
“Our new tissue machine is equipped with a new PrimePress XT shoe press, which provides high productivity and product quality, together with an Andritz Papillon refiner and ShortFlow system. These technical and technological characteristics will significantly reduce the consumption of water and steam in the production process and also minimize costs in general,” says Irina Galakhova, Executive Director, Arkhbum Tissue Group LLC.
