On September 14, 2011, Shanghai Orient Champion Paper started up their new Metso-supplied tissue production line, TM 7, at their facility in Jinshan outside Shanghai, China. Now, less than eight months after the start-up of the first Advantage DCT machine, a second Advantage machine was even more successfully started up on April 26, 2012 at the same site.
Due to the excellent cooperation between Shanghai Orient Champion Paper and Metso the TM 8 machine started up smoothly on schedule.
Metso’s scope of delivery included two complete tissue production lines, featuring one Advantage DCT 100+ and one Advantage DCT 135+ tissue machine. Each of the lines includes stock preparation systems, comprehensive Metso DNA automation systems and Metso IQ quality control systems with steam profiler and auxiliaries. Each of the machines is equipped with an OptiFlo headbox, a Metso Yankee cylinder, an Advantage AirCap hood, an Advantage WetDust dust management system for enhanced working environment and a ValReel reel.
