Description: Encore tissue started up a new Toscotec Steel Yankee Dryer on ET3 at its Laverton North mill, Melbourne, Australia. The Australian tissue maker purchased a second generation TT SYD of 3600 mm diameter, to replace an existing cast iron Yankee.
Details: Following the installation of Toscotec’s steel Yankee dryer, Encore Tissue expects to increase the machine operating speed from 1,400 mpm to 1,900 mpm. They also expect an increase in production and machine efficiency, and a real improvement of the finished product quality, from the point of view of homogeneity of the tissue structure. With this sale, Toscotec sets a new important record in the steel Yankee dryer market: 203 TT SYD sold in 36 countries across five continents.
