Toscotec, Italy, with its associate Milltech, has been awarded a contract to deliver a major dry-end rebuild of the ISMA 2000 S.L. PM 1 in La Torre de Claramunt, Barcelona, Spain. Startup of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for the beginning of 2016. 

ISMA 2000 SL has operating centers in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands. The main business in Barcelona is the production and processing of tissue products, while in Mallorca the activity is focused on the collection and recovery of wastepaper. The main recognized company products are from 100% recycled paper and include away from home towel, kitchen rolls, sheets stretcher rolls, napkins, and toilet paper.
Toscotec's delivery includes a major rebuild of the PM 1 dry end section, which will be replaced with a TT DOES (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving) package. This will features a new TT SYD-3600MM provided with the Toscotec patented solution for head insulation, a new yankee steam and condensate system, and a Duo-system yankee hood, SMART type, from Milltech. Engineering, training startup and commissioning services are also included in the package.
The aim of the rebuild is to increase production and performances of the crescent former machine up to 90 metric tpd. This is the decision that has driven ISMA 2000 to apply for the TT DOES package from Toscotec.
"Our broad conclusion after a deep technical evaluation," said Fernando Luz, company GM, "is that we are forced either to increase output for the same or less specific energy consumption input. Toscotec‘s large experience and reliable approach with its proven TT DOES package, already applied in several mills’ working conditions worldwide, has matched our requirement in this direction. This rebuild completes the one already initiated in the phase of pulp treatment, allowing us to use complex raw material with high quality fibers and increasing efficiency and reducing energy consumption."
