Description: Gulf Paper Manufacturing selected Toscotec for the rebuild of the dryer section of its PM1 at Mina Abdullah paper mill, Kuwait. The paper machine has a reel trim of 2,550 mm and produces fluting, test liner and white top grades from 100 to 200 gsm using 100% recycled fibres.
Details: Toscotec will supply 24 TT SteelDryers, with a maximum operating steam pressure of 10 bar and a design speed of 800 mpm. The dryer section’s driving system with obsolete gears will be replaced by a silent drive system. The scope also includes the lubrication unit for the new dryer section and it will be especially designed for the high-temperature working environment of the mill. The supply is on a turnkey basis, including the erection, commissioning and start-up. The target of the rebuild is to boost the drying capacity, thanks to the TT SteelDryers. The dryer section’s length will remain unchanged.
Start-up: Start-up is planned for the last quarter of 2019.
