Four tissue lines supplied by Valmet have been successfully started up at Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing's Chongqing mill in China within three months.

Valmet's scope of delivery comprised four complete tissue production lines featuring stock preparation systems and Advantage DCT 200HS tissue machines. Each tissue machine has a width of 18.37' (5.6 m), design speed of approximately 6,561 ft/min (2,000 m/min) and an annual production of 60,000 tons of toilet and facial tissue. They use virgin wood pulp and bleached bamboo fiber as raw material.
