Oji Group Orders New Toscotec Steel Yankee Dryer

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Oji Paper Co., Japan, has ordered from Toscotec, Italy, a TT SYD (steel yankee dryer) to be installed at its tissue production site in Kasugai. The TT SYD, with a diameter of 12 ft. and a face length of 5,750 mm, will replace an existing, deteriorated yankee dryer. Installation of the new TT SYD-12FT is scheduled for the end of this year.
The new yankee dryer design optimizes its internal grooves and reduces the nominal thickness of the cylinder, providing for more efficient heat exchange. The resulting increased drying capacity allows higher machine performance in both 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 the yankee due to less heat loss.
Established in 1873, the Oji Group has been a leader in the pulp and paper industry in Japan for more than 100 years.
