The Advantage™ NTT® concept is designed for maximum flexibility and can easily swing between energy efficient production of conventional tissue and high quality textured tissue in a few hours.
Unlimited possibilities for product variations
Fast change from plain to textured tissue
Premium paper quality
Low basis weight and high bulk
Significant savings in energy and fiber
High capacity and efficiency
Designed for maximum flexibility
The Advantage NTT technology is easy to operate, has high machine efficiency and operates at high speed. The operating cost is comparable to the Advantage DCT technology for textured tissue and less in conventional mode. It is particularly suited for production of premium quality bath, towel, facial and napkin grades from virgin or recycled pulp.
The energy consumption in textured mode is significantly lower compared to the TAD process while in plain mode it is comparable or lower than other conventional tissue making processes.
Increased pressing in combination with the plain NTT belt gives significant energy savings while at the same time it provides a very high softness.
Speed in textured mode
Speed in conventional mode
Highest production capacity
The NTT machine can operate in two different modes, one as plain or conventional mode making products similar to conventional dry crepe DCT, the other producing textured products with high bulk.
The technology is easy to operate, has high machine efficiency and operates at high speed. It is particularly suited for production of premium quality bath, towel, facial and napkin grades from virgin or recycled pulp.
In the plain or conventional mode it is possible to produce very high volumes of tissue products with high softness at low energy consumption. Making products similar to conventional dry crepe DCT. A high production rate of 2000 m/min can be achieved.
The energy consumption in plain mode it is comparable or lower than other conventional tissue making processes
Textured mode provides the possibility to produce premium quality tissue with 50-100% more bulk and softness as well as water absorbency. Fiber savings up to 30% can be obtained due to the increased bulk.
The energy consumption in textured mode is significantly lower compared to the TAD process. With the Advantage NTT process in textured mode it is possible to achieve both high bulk and high dryness at the same time.
