LUCCA, ITALY, May 2, 2018 (Press Release) -Cartiera di Pietramelara is successfully running a new 16 feet diameter steel Yankee dryer supplied by Toscotec. The second generation TT SYD-16FT replaced a cast iron Yankee and it was started up on schedule in mid-January 2018. The scope of supply also included the complete Yankee steam and condensate system.
Toscotec is the inventor and the undiscussed market leader of steel Yankee dryers worldwide, supplying SYDs both for new tissue machines and in replacement of cast iron Yankees. This proves that paper mills across the globe acknowledge that TT SYD is the best technology currently available on the market in terms of energy efficiency, reliability and safety.
