Both tissue machines are equipped with an 18 ft. PrimeDry Steel Yankee and a PrimeDry Hood ST with steam heating to enable highly efficient drying while saving energy.

The steel Yankees were manufactured at the Andritz Steel Yankee Business Center in Foshan, China. They are metallized with PrimeCoat Stratos 2.0, the latest generation of Andritz coating, to provide greater hardness and extended Yankee lifetime.

Market pulp bales are dissolved in Andritz FibreSolve FSV pulpers, which enable efficient slushing without damaging the fibers. Six v TwinFlo double disc refiners achieve superior fiber properties with regard to fiber length and fibrillation. ModuScreen HBE screens protect the tissue machine and ensure highest runability. Both tissue production lines are equipped with the Andritz PrimeControl automation system for an optimized production process.
