Toscotec was selected to rebuild the dryer section of Papertech PM 1 at Tudela mill, Spain.
The customer has recognized Toscotec is the right partner to provide the best technology available in the drying process and to accomplish the company targets.
The ambitious aim of the project is to improve the actual gross production, by overcoming several constraints by intelligently applying Toscotec’s Steel Dryer technology and its features. The base project goals were: increasing the production, by maintaining the same length of dryer section, and drying a wider paper sheet with the same dryer face length.
The scope of supply will be on a turnkey basis, confirming once more the consolidated skill of Toscotec to manage complex projects and coordinate all the involved parties.
With this achievement, Toscotec will strengthen its reputation for being an all-round partner for Paper and Board manufacturers.
A key factor of the dryer section modification is to replace completely the last four sections with TT SteelDryer technology, thus resulting in 20 new TT SteelDryers with increased diameter and drying face width. The scope of supply also includes TT AirTail, an advanced rope-less tail threading system, specifically designed for low speed and high basis weight.
Toscotec’s service specialists will provide erection, supervision, commissioning and start-up assistance.
Delivery is forecast within the end of 2018, with start-up at beginning of 2019.
