Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

SCA has started up its new Toscotec Steel Yankee Dryer on PM 11 at its South Glens Falls, N. Y., USA, mill. SCA purchased the 12-ft.-dia. Model TT SYD to replace a damaged plane bore cast iron yankee. With the upgrade to Toscotec's Steel Yankee Dryer technology, SCA is expected to increase its steam condensate flow by more than 40%. 
On the first day of production, SCA surpassed the condensate flow guarantee and further reduced the temperature in the hoods, allowing for the reduction in natural gas consumption. With the added drying capacity from the Toscotec Steel Yankee Dryer, SCA expects to increase production capacity on PM 11 by more than 17%, especially with higher basis weight napkin products.
"We are impressed with Toscotec's technology and quality of design. Toscotec demonstrated its years of startup experience with steel yankee installations as the project was installed on schedule and surpassed our expectations," said Mark Phiscator, director of engineering for SCA North America. 

Based in Lucca, Italy, Toscotec is a global supplier of machinery and services for the tissue industry. It operates in North America through its affiliate Toscotec North America, located in Green Bay, Wis., that provides services in the territory.
