A tissue production machine will be installed at Papel San Francisco’s mill in Mexicali, Mexico. Startup of the Valmet-supplied line, which will fulfill the company’s need of new capacity for standard tissue products, is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.
The machine will have a width of 9.18' (2.8 m) and a design speed of 7,218 ft/min (2,200 m/min). It will add 30,000 tons of tissue paper per year to Papel San Francisco's current production of toilet tissue, kitchen towels and napkins. Valmet's scope of delivery will comprise an Advantage DCT 100TS tissue machine.
