Voith successfully starts up new XcelLine TM 10 tissue machine at Lee & Man's Jiangxi site in China. Thanks to the great cooperation between Lee & Man and the Voith onsite team, it took only 30 minutes from “stock on wire” to “paper on reel”, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
With a wire width of 5,600 mm, the TM 10 is designed for a maximum operational speed of 2,000 m/min. It will produce 60,000 tons of household tissue annually from virgin fiber.
The scope of supply includes the BlueLine stock preparation, approach flow system, broke handling, a white water system and the tissue machine. It features the perfect combination of a NipcoFlex T shoe press to offer remarkable energy savings, a 5.5-meter steel Yankee dryer cylinder to enhance drying efficiency through optimized heat transfer, and a high-performance steam-heated hood to provide the required tissue quality with lower energy consumption.
