Founded in April 2020, Liansheng Pulp & Paper is a new household paper production base of Fujian Liansheng Paper Co. Ltd, the largest packaging paper manufacturer in Fujian Province, China.
The two CrescentFormer tissue machines of type PrimeLine W 2000 have a design speed of 2 000 m/min and a working width of 5.65 m. Both are equipped with a large suction press and a PrimeDry Steel Yankee. The Yankee has a diameter of 20 ft. and is made entirely of steel.
The PrimeDry Hood ST – steam-heated Yankee hood – is engineered with a steam-heated air system. It operates in a temperature range of around 200 degrees C, which can provide an additional 15-25 percent drying capacity compared to the Yankee alone.
The tissue machine, including all key components, will be manufactured at the ANDRITZ workshop in Foshan, China, while the hoods will be supplied by ANDRITZ Novimpianti, Italy.
ANDRITZ will also provide tailored automation systems, including PrimeControl MCS (Machine Control System), QCS (Quality Control System), pneumatic and hydraulic equipment, and lubrication systems.
The stock preparation systems, using NBKP (Needle Bleached Kraft Pulp) and LBKP (Leaf Bleached Kraft Pulp) as raw material, will feature highly efficient equipment such as FibreSolve FSV pulpers. As a technological highlight, special refining systems will be applied, consisting of a pulp screw press and an HC refiner, type CDIPL, operating for LBKP at a high consistency of 25-30 percent.
According to ANDRITZ, the innovative refining set-up will enable superior fiber properties with stable runnability. The scope of supply also includes approach flow systems and broke handling. The company has supplied over 10 stock preparation systems to Liansheng Paper since 2009.
