Parteks Paper Co., Turkey, has successfully started up its new Toscotec (Italy) tissue line at Kayseri, capital of the same district in the Central Anatolian region. The new machine came on-stream soon after the commissioning period and is now producing high quality tissue products, according to the guaranteed technological parameters.

Founded in 1996, Parteks is a fully integrated producer of tissue paper for household and community markets, corrugated cardboard, and fluting paper. The existing plant that houses the mill’s TM 1 tissue machine (started up in 2007), the PM 1 fluting machine, and corrugating line covers an area of 100,000 sq. meters. The converting facility for tissue is close by the plant. The mill’s tissue paper is produced with recycled paper and virgin pulp. 

The Toscotec delivery, based on an intensive energy-saving concept, included the approach flow featuring Toscotec technology TT SAF, broke line, a MODULO-PLUS tissue machine with single-layer headbox, single press configuration, and a Toscotec steel yankee dryer TT SYD-12FT. The supply also includes an electrification and controls package, tissue machine auxiliaries such as a natural gas heated hood, and a steam and condensate system provided by Toscotec associate Milltech. A two-unwind-stands Toscotec rewinder TT WIND-P completes the package.

With a width of 2.85 meters and a design speed of 1,600 m/min., the new production line produces 75 metric tpd of high-quality facial, toilet, and towel grades. The project was focused on reduced energy consumptions, usage of selected raw materials in the manufacturing process, recovery and re-usage of  process water, low emissions (noise and pollutants), and green energy adoption.
