Location: Tudela, Spain
Production: Special industrial papers
Description: Toscotec was selected to rebuild the dryer section of Papertech PM 1 at Tudela mill.
Details: 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.
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.
