Andritz launches two high-speed TMs into the tissue market

Andritz has introduced two high-speed tissue machines with 2,200m/min design speed for maximum capacity.

The PrimeLineTM S 2200 with 2.6 to 2.85m width at reel, and the PrimeLineTM W 2200 with 5.4 to 5.6m width at reel feature Metris, the company’s digital offering which enable remote assistance during commissioning and start-up.

Günter Offenbacher, Andritz Sales Director for Tissue and Drying, said: “With the new high-speed machines, we can offer an innovative concept for dry-crepe tissue machines with high production efficiency for every customer need.

“Our comprehensive product portfolio ranges from high-performance machines with speeds of up to 2,200m/min down to efficient compact solutions for smaller production capacities.”

Key components that can be installed include the PrimePress XT shoe press for gentle dewatering and high nip-loads, the PrimeDry Steel Yankee for energy-efficient drying, and the PrimeDry Hood ST for steam-heated drying instead of using more expensive gas heating.
