Oji orders steel Yankee dryer from Toscotec to replace an existing one at its paper mill in Kasugai, Japan, with installation set for end of 2014; the TT SYD's new design has more drying capacity to boost paper machine's output and speed, saves energy

LUCCA, Italy , April 22, 2014 (press release) – 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 12ft and a face length of 5750mm and it will replace the existing deteriorated Yankee Dryer.

Established in 1873, the Oji Group has been a leader in the pulp and paper industry in Japan for over a hundred years. The company 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. Toscotec provide a very competitive, reliable rebuild solution for the tissue industry.

Mr. Mennucci, CEO of Toscotec, states: “We are honored and thrilled to start a cooperation with the Oji Group. We are confident that we will achieve energy savings and drying capacity results”.
