Valmet installed and commissioned a tissue machine at Hengan’s mill in Wuhu, China. The unit will add 60,000 tons per year of tissue products to the company’s current production of more than 1 million tons per year.

Valmet delivered a complete tissue production line, including stock preparation systems and an automation package with DCS and QCS process control system. The machine includes Valmet tissue-making technology such as a gas-heated AirCap hood, WetDust dust system and SoftReel P reel.

The tissue machine, which will reduce Hengan’s current production shortage, has a width of 18.3' (5.6 m) and a design speed of 6,561.6 ft/min (2,000 m/min). Basic engineering and training were also included in the delivery.
