Japan: Toscotec to supply a Steel Yankee Dryer to Oji Group


Toscotec has received an order from Oji Paper Co., Ltd.Japan for a TT SYD (Steel Yankee Dryer) to be installed at its production site in Kasugai. The TT SYD has a diameter of 12 ft and a face length of 5,750 mm and it will replace the existing deteriorated Yankee Dryer.

The installation of the new TT SYD-12FT is scheduled for the end of 2014.

The Oji Group has perceived the innovation linked to the TT SYD Second Generation born by the Toscotec experience. The new design provides an optimization of the internal grooves and the reduction of the nominal thickness of the cylinder involving a more efficient heat exchange, therefore the increased capacity of drying allows to increase the performance of the machine both in terms of production and speed. In addition field measurements, ensure that the insulation of the heads (Toscotec patent owner), reduces by 5% the consumption of steam at Yankee due to less heat loss.
