Toscotec will supply a third-generation design TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer to the South Korean tissue manufacturer Mirae Paper at their Jeonju paper mill. This is a repeat order from Mirae Paper who installed their first TT SYD on PM3 in 2013. The new steel Yankee will replace PM2’s existing cast-iron cylinder and it is scheduled for start-up in the second half of 2022.
The third-generation design of TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer benefits from an ideal ratio of the weight, width and pitch of the internal ribs and the optimization of the shell thickness. The scope of supply includes the condensate removal system and Toscotec’s patented heads insulation for maximum thermal energy efficiency. The associated services include the complete project management, erection supervision, operation and maintenance training, commissioning and start-up assistance.
The TT SYD will be manufactured at Toscotec’s fully integrated TT SYD Technology Center in Massa (Italy), situated just 3 kilometers away from seaport to ensure fast and safe shipping operations.
Toscotec is continuously upgrading the design of TT SYD, benefiting from the vast experience of over 200 TT SYD running across 5 continents worldwide under the most diverse operational and environmental conditions. This year, Toscotec has launched TT Defender®, a breakthrough patented innovation that equips TT SYD with an internal protection coating against corrosive steam.
Yeong Rok Lee, Mirae Paper’s Production Manager, says, “The steel Yankee on PM3 has been operating efficiently for over 8 years, allowing us to reduce our thermal energy consumption by a significant amount. We expect the new Yankee on PM2 to be as reliable and to deliver even higher performances, considered the design upgrades that Toscotec has implemented on their TT SYD since our first installation. We consider the Yankee dryer to be the core component of our tissue machine’s drying capacity. We chose the best technology available in the market, with all the technical support we need from an expert supplier.”
Gabriele Martinelli, Toscotec’s Sales Manager, says, “It is very rewarding that Mirae Paper has chosen Toscotec for the second time on their Yankee replacement. Toscotec strengthens its position in South Korea, where it is the only supplier of steel Yankee dryers, with 12 TT SYD sold in 9 years, including two installed on Toscotec’s AHEAD tissue lines.” This order was obtained with the support of CleanTech Corporation, Yongin, South Korea.
