LUCCA, ITALY, April 16, 2018 (Press Release) -Toscotec’s steel Yankee dryer TT SYD-18FT was successfully fired up at Fujian Jinmin Reconstituted Tobacco Development Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China National Tobacco Corporation, at its Luoyuan mill, Fujian, China. The TT SYD reached top performance immediately after start-up at the end of March.
The advantages of TT SYD can benefit all grades and types of paper, not least reconstituted tobacco paper. After Toscotec’s successful reconstituted tobacco application in the U.S., the Chinese reconstituted tobacco paper producer Fujian Jinmin is now operating a big diameter TT SYD, which guarantees top drying efficiency at the lowest possible consumption cost.
From the delivery of the first TT SYD in 2000 throughout 18 years of successful and safe applications and two generations of design, this achievement further reinforces Toscotec’s position as the number one supplier of steel Yankee dryers worldwide. The number of TT SYD sold in five continents around the globe has recently reached more than 200 units, way ahead of the competition. Based on its ever-growing experience, Toscotec has constantly been upgrading its design and it is currently in the process of honing the third generation of TT SYD.
