Wepa, Germany, has started up a  new Milltech (owned by Toscotec, Italy) SMART-eMT yankee hood complete with air system and heat recovery at its Cassino tissue mill in Italy. The investment allows Wepa to achieve significant improvements in production and consumption, while offering the best solution for a safe, quick installation within the existing machine.

The SMART-eMT yankee hood, designed in accordance with the best available technologies, uses multiple heat recovery stages to recover exhaust energy. With this important new upgrade, the Cassino mill can now optimize the production cycle and achieve a real improvement in paper quality, while decreasing energy consumption and environmental impact.

Wepa Cassino is located in the center of Italy, close to Rome. The modern facility is completely integrated with a 5,600 mm wide tissue machine, converting lines, and automatic storage system. Its capacity is more than 60.000 metric tpy.

Milltech, which has formed part of the Toscotec group since 2012, specializes in machine hoods, dust extraction systems, yankee steam and condensate systems, and energy recovery. Its main purpose is to maximize the use of modern technology to minimize energy consumption throughout the drying process, Toscotec notes.
