Tissue machines product portfolio
There is increasing pressure for tissue producers to improve efficiencies and reduce consumption of energy. ANDRITZ has solutions that are innovative, efficient, and minimize the consumption of resources – without compromising on product quality. PrimeLine tissue machines are available as PrimeLineCOMPACT, PrimeLineTM, and PrimeLineTAD tissue machines. Key components of these tissue machines are ideal for rebuilds and modernization projects.
PrimeLineTM tissue machine
With key components that save resources
PrimeLineTM machines are widely embraced by the global tissue industry — not only because of proven performance, but also for continuous innovations. ANDRITZ brings new energy-saving features and capabilities to its CrescentFormer machines and components: Type M machines (widths from 3.4 to 3.65 m) and Type W machines (widths from 5.4 to 5.6 m) can be equipped with a PrimeDry steel Yankee (up to 22 ft. diameter), a PrimePress XT shoe press, and a PrimeDry heat recovery re-evaporation system, which help to improve yield, efficiencies, and energy conservation.
PrimeLineTAD tissue machine
Premium tissue through-air drying technology
The improved softness, absorbency, and bulk generated by the Through-Air Drying (TAD) process give these products superiority over conventional processes.

Reduced energy consumption is the key
ANDRITZ offers the EconoFit control concept that monitors and analyzes the drying process to reduce energy consumption. The new PrimeDry steel Yankee (up to 22 ft. diameter) is made entirely of steel, resulting in greater safety and higher performance due to the elasticity of steel compared to cast iron. The higher performance can be used to save on energy costs by drying more with steam, which is generally relatively cheap.
