The tissue machine started producing sellable paper immediately after start-up and is scheduled to reach the target speed in the following weeks, after careful fine-tuning.

The new MODULO-PLUS produces 65 tpd and it features a single layer TT Headbox, TT SuctionPressRoll, TT SYD-3200MM, TT Milltech-MYH monosystem gas-fired hoods. The scope of supply also includes the approach flow system, the electrification & control system, training, erection supervision, commissioning and start-up assistance.

PM4 is part of a series of repeated orders awarded to Toscotec by the leading South American tissue producer. In 2015, the Italian manufacturer carried out the rebuilding of PM2, an existing Fourdrinier machine, and supplied a new steel Yankee dryer TT SYD-2500MM and the complete steam and condensate system. In 2016, Toscotec supplied PM3, a complete MODULO tissue line.

Mario Speranza, CEO of Celupaper S.A. says, “Thanks to the continued production increase implemented with Toscotec’s plants, we have grown significantly in the South American market. Since 2015, we boosted production by over 100 tpd.Tissue quality, machine efficiency and energy reduction are our key standards of investments in new equipment. Throughout 4 years of close partnership with Toscotec, we have achieved good results with respect to all of these aspects and have continuously improved such results”.

“PM4 project evinced once again the excellent cooperation we have with Celupaper. With every new project, we aim to improve their performances. We worked intensively together on the reduction of energy consumption, starting from the design, with our TT DOES solution (Drying Optimization for Energy Savings) all the way to the fine-tuning of the plants at the mill site. On PM4, we also optimized the layout of the electrical and auxiliary plants, to guarantee better access for the operators to the different areas of the machine” commented Toscotec’s Project Manager Pier Paolo Brunazzi.
