Andritz has successfully started up Hengan Group’s PM18 tissue machine.

The PrimeLineST W8 tissue machine is installed in the company’s Changde mill and it has a design speed of 2,000m/min and a width of 5.6m.

It and the Andritz-supplied PM17 (started up in September 2014) are equipped with an 18-foot steel Yankee combined with a steam hood to minimise drying energy costs.

The scope of supply also included the complete stock preparation plant and the automation system.
