Due to the high capital investment, for more than 30 years, the “premium tissue” production was available only for the largest tissue paper producers using the Through Air Drying (TAD) technology. Besides the high capital investment, the high energy consumption and the need of expensive virgin fibers result in elevated production costs. Now, with the innovative ATMOS (Advance Tissue Molding System) technology, the “premium tissue” is available to a larger range of tissue producers, including the ones that use recycled fibers as raw material. This breakthrough new technology achieves much higher quality than the ones produced with the dry crepe machines and is able to achieve the “premium tissue” quality, eliminating at the same time, the existing Through Air Drying (TAD) disadvantages. The new technology will be presented as well as the comparison with the main tissue technologies commercially available, dry crepe and TAD.
