Sun Paper starts up new 60,000tpy tissue PM in China
(News from RISI) – China’s Sun Paper has started up a new 60,000tpy tissue PM at its flagship mill in Yanzhou city, Shandong province.
The first sheet of paper rolled off the Andritz machine (PM28) on 9 March; it has a width of 5.62m and a design speed of 2,000m/min.
The machine is equipped with a two-layer headbox and the order included dilution control, a Steel Yankee dryer with a diameter of 18 feet and a heat recovery system.
Sun Paper diversified into the tissue segment last year by commissioning an identical 60,000tpy unit (PM27) at the same mill.
