Liansheng Pulp & Paper has successfully started up two ANDRITZ tissue machines including stock preparation and automation systems at its mill in Zhangzhou, Fujian Province, China.

The tissue machines of the type PrimeLineTM W 2000 have a design speed of 2,000 m/min and a working width of 5.65 m. Both are equipped with energy-saving components like 20 ft. PrimeDry Steel Yankees and steam-heated hoods.

The stock preparation systems, using NBKP (Needle Bleached Kraft Pulp) and LBKP (Leaf Bleached Kraft Pulp), feature FibreSolve FSV pulpers, a pulp screw press and HC refiners to achieve consistencies in the range of 25%-30% and excellent fiber properties. The scope also includes the approach flow systems, broke handling, and a comprehensive fabrics and rolls package (forming fabrics, press felts, roll covers) for optimum dewatering at high speed.

Fan Lele, Vice Sales General Manager of Household Paper, Liansheng Pulp & Paper, says: “We were really excited to hold the first tissue in our hands. The tissue quality has been excellent right from the start.”

Liansheng Pulp & Paper (Zhangzhou) Co., Ltd., a new production base of the Liansheng Paper Group, was established in 2020, in order to enter the household paper production industry. It is the largest packaging paper manufacturer in Fujian, China with a special focus on environmental-friendly production.
