Toscotec Dryer Section Rebuilt at Sonoco Alcore Paper Mill

Marlia, Lucca, Italy 13 September 2016 -- The PM1 in Ciriè is specialized for the production of high quality core board grades.

The goal of investment was principally to increase the production, optimizing both efficiency and dryer section runnability by rebuilding of several dryer groups. A total of 15 new TT SteelDryer in place of casted iron dryers has been provided, together with the modernization of mechanical drive and tail threading implementation.

The specific design of TT SteelDryer with flat heads welded to the shell allows to produce a wider and uniformly dried-out sheet. Toscotec was the first to introduce the revolutionary concept of steel dryers in the paper industry. Today it boasts an undisputed leadership with more than 1200 installed units worldwide.

On completion a new mist removal device has been supplied in the forming section, in order to increase the wet section cleaning and efficiency.

The expected shut-down time was respected and productivity targets were immediately achieved after the start-up.
