XcelLine from Voith: Highest performance from the full-line supplier for tissue production
The startup of the Cheng Loong TM 16 in Taiwan took place in September 2015. Its operating speed is up to 2,001 m/min, which is the fastest speed with a steam hood in the world, leading the industry in several performance indexes. At this record-breaking high speed, the steam consumption of the TM 16 is still very low, at only 1.65 metric ton of steam per ton paper.
Four successful start-ups of Voith XcelLine tissue machines at Lee & Man in 2017
On December 23, 2017 the new Voith XcelLine tissue machine TM 12 was successfully started up at Guangdong Lee & Man, taking only 28 minutes from “stock on wire” to “paper on reel”. From the very first parent roll produced, the tissue was of saleable quality. TM 12 was the fourth XcelLine tissue machine that was launched by Voith for Lee & Man in 2017; the previous three were TM 9, TM 10 and TM 11.

Dispersion / Bleaching
Dispersion / Bleaching
Disperging is used in recovered fiber systems for reducing unwanted contaminants to a size not interfering with downstream processing. Disperging also has the task of dislodging and reducing residual ink particles from the recovered fibers. This is a precondition for efficient deinking in flotation cells. Bleaching improves the optical characteristics of the stock. The brightness is increased with the penetration of chemical additives by bleaching the fibers and colour stripping as well as moving the colour spectrum.
