Voith Paper has won the order to supply a complete tissue processing line to Celulosa Argentina. The system, to be supplied as a Process Line Package (PLP), will go on stream in Capitán Bermúdez (about 300 km to the north-west of Buenos Aires) in early 2015. The new VTM 1 productionline, which has a wire width of 2,760 mm and runs at 1,800 m/min, will produce around 30,000 metric tons of 15–21 g/m² basis weight toilet tissue and kitchen roll from virgin fiber.
The scope of supply includes a VTM 1 tissue machine consisting of MasterJet T 1-layer headbox, Voith steel cylinder with high performance hood, the innovative shoe press technology NipcoFlex T and a MasterReel. Voith’s OnQ quality control system equipped with non- radioactive sensors for the measurement of moisture content and fiber weight, the OnC process control system as well as the entire stock preparation, engineering and additional services complete the PLP package.
