A Metso-supplied Advantage DCT 200 TS tissue production line successfully came on stream on December 18, 2010 at the Hayat Kimya A.S mill in Yeniköy, which is located near the city of Izmit in Turkey. The Hayat Kimya TM 2 started up smoothly on schedule and produced a good-quality saleable product from the very beginning.

“We reached a successful start-up thanks to good cooperation and the efforts by the Metso personnel in a record short time of 13 months from the contract signing. In the light of such a short time, the start-up was a big success for all of us. This cooperation will continue and I am convinced we will continue production with a very good paper quality,” says Lütfi Aydin, Paper Mill Director at the Hayat Kimya mill.

Metso’s delivery comprised a complete tissue production line including a stock preparation system and an Advantage DCT 200 TS tissue machine. The tissue machine is equipped with an OptiFlo headbox, a Metso Yankee cylinder, an Advantage AirCap hood adapted for co-generation, an Advantage WetDust dust system, an Advantage Run sheet transfer system and an Advantage SoftReel L reel. The stock preparation line consists of OptiSlush pulpers, OptiFiner conical refiners and OptiScreen machine screens.

Furthermore, the delivery included an extensive automation package with metsoDNA machine and process controls, a PaperIQ Plus scanner and quality controls. Complete engineering, installation supervision, training, start-up and commissioning were also included in the delivery.

With a width of 5.6 m and a design speed of 2,200 m/min, the new line has a design capacity of 70,000 tons a year of high-quality facial, toilet and towel grades. Raw material for the new line is virgin fiber. The production line is optimized to save energy and to enhance final product quality.
