Fleissner Announces Sales
Germany-based Fleissner GmbH recently has sold several AquaJet spunlace systems. A US firm will use a 3.6-meter, 12,000 metric tons-per-year (mtpy)-capacity spunlace line in the production of carded wipes, with expected start-up by the end of 2006. A company in Europe has ordered a 4,500-millimeter (mm)-working-width heavy-duty line and a high-capacity Fleissner TAD through-air drum dryer for use in the manufacture of a new-generation spunlace web. In the Middle East, a 5,000-mtpy-capacity line will be installed for use in wipes and medical/sanitary applications. A LeanJet system with a working width of 2,500 mm and capacity of 5,000 mtpy will be shipped to China-based New Tsongtsien for use in production of plain and apertured webs for hospital, hygienic and wipes applications.
