Toscotec successfully started up a TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer at Cartiera Ponte d'Oro Ansalcarta in Villa Basilica, Italy. The new Yankee replaced an existing cast iron dryer installed on PM1 in 1993 by Officine Meccaniche Toschi, which was renamed Toscotec in 2003.
Manufactured at Toscotec's fully integrated TT SYD Technology Center in Massa (Italy), the steel Yankee dryer included the condensate removal system, Toscotec's patented heads insulation for maximum thermal energy efficiency, as well as expert services from detailed engineering to erection supervision and start-up assistance.
Toscotec is constantly building on its experience of steel Yankee dryers to advance the progress of TT SYD's design and services. It currently has more than 200 TT SYD operating under the most diverse conditions around the globe, which provide valuable data for further product improvement. This year, Toscotec also introduced TT Defender®, a breakthrough patented innovation that provides Yankees with an internal protection coating against corrosive steam.
Cartiera Ponte d'Oro Ansalcarta produces rolls of white and coloured tissue paper from almost entirely recycled fibres, for both at home and AfH markets.
Toscotec designs and manufactures machines, systems and components for the production of tissue and paper & board.
