          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”.

          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.

              Dryer Section

              In the dryer section, the remaining water is evaporated by the supply of heat energy. In this case the paper web is led over dryers that are heated from the inside by means of steam. At the end of the drying process, the paper has a residual moisture of approximately 2% to 9 % depending on the grade.
