Valmet will deliver its DNA automation systems and IQ quality control systems for four tissue machines at Jiangxi Taison Paper in China.
Valmet’s automation technology will allow Jiangxi Taison Paper’s tissue machines to optimize machine performance and quality of end-products.
The company will deliver its DNA distributed control systems (DCS) to control the four tissue machines and its IQ quality control systems (QCS) with scanning measurement sensors.
Valmet claims that the QCS has IQ Fiber Measurement can simultaneously measure fiber weight and moisture. The system has been designed to replace traditional nuclear basis weight sensors.
Presently, there are about 200 sensors being used in machines with furnish ranging between virgin pulp to 100% recycled fibre.
The combination of two measurements in one sensor, fibre weight and moisture can considerably reduce investment and life-cycle costs as well as eliminating the need for nuclear licenses, safety training and handling procedures.
Jiangxi Taison general manager Wu Jianxiong said: "Valmet is one of the top suppliers for the Chinese pulp and paper industry. The company has very good tissue machine and automation technologies, wide experience and many successful references in China. It's also very important for us that Valmet has a professional local service team close to us. We trust in Valmet."
Valmet area sales manager Andy Zhang said: "Jiangxi Taison can count on highly efficient project management, on-time delivery and a successful startup when working with Valmet. Our proven technology for tissue making, such as non-nuclear measurements and the reliable Valmet DNA platform, will enable the mill to succeed and move its performance forward.”
