Gomà-Camps boosts tissue production capacity with Voith technology
The tissue machine is designed for an operating speed of 2,000 meter per minute and will annually produce 35,000 metric tons of high-quality toilet and towel paper from pulp with a working width of 2.8 meter. Start-up is scheduled for early 2018.
“The new TM7 proves the symbiosis of innovation and quality perfectly, “ explains General Director Gomà-Camps Consumer, J.I. Gonzalez. “We felt the tissue dedication and perfect partnership with Voith in this important project to us. This passion guarantees the success of the project. ”
In designing the entire tissue production process, low energy consumption benchmark values are achieved due to the use of the BlueLine product family, focusing also on lowest fresh water and waste water values. The IntensaPulper and the TwinFlow refiner ensure perfect fiber treatment at a high level of short fiber usage. Furthermore, the NipcoFlex T shoe press was a key factor in choosing Voith. With this technology, the need for thermal energy can be substantially reduced and the NipcoFlex T is ideally suited for the production of premium super soft tissue and thus meets the high quality requirements of Gomà-Camps.
The new tissue production line will be equipped with further energy-efficient, operator friendly components and systems, like the MasterJet T headbox, EvoDry T steel Yankee and the EcoHood T.
In addition, the effluent plant and the fabrics package as well as QualiFlex press sleeves, the full automation system including the innovative ComCore platform are delivered by Voith. The entire service package consisting of supervision, start-up, installation and optimization complete the delivery.
