Lucart progresses with an investment on its PM4 at Porcari facility


The Italian tissue producer Lucart has started-up its PM4 tissue machine in Porcari (Lucca, Italia) after the rebuild committed to Toscotec. The upgrade included a modification of the forming section and the complete replacement of the old hood with a new Toscotec Mono Yankee Hood fed by natural gas and complete with relevant Air System and Heat Recovery System.

The upgrade of the Wire section consists of the replacement of the forming roll and of the main white water saveall, as well as relocation of the headbox and breast roll.

PM4 is a Twin wire former with double press configuration for 2,7 m sheet width, dedicated for the white and coloured tissue paper jumbo reels. The aim of the investment is to increase the production capacity up to 90 tpd and the operating speed of 20% improving the formation quality and reducing the energetic consumptions.
