Nicaragua mill, Argentina.

Cheng Loong, Chupei, Taiwan, reports
that its TM 16 tissue machine provided by

Voith has successfully passed its guarantee
test. Its operating speed is up to 2,001 m/min,
which is the fastest speed with a steam hood in
the world, leading the industry in several performance indexes. In the guarantee test, TM 16
kept running at 2,001 m/min for eight hours
and reached all guarantee indexes. At this
record-breaking high speed, steam consumption of the TM 16 is still very low, at only 1.65
metric tons of steam per metric ton of paper.
