The Dominican Group César Iglesias successfully started up a second generation TT SYD at its paper mill in Santo Domingo. Following start-up, the mill has observed a marked increase of production capacity and important energy savings in the drying section. 

Thanks to continuous R&D on Toscotec’s Steel Yankee Dryer, the height, width and pitch of the internal ribs as well as the shell thickness achieved an optimal geometry, which guarantees a highly efficient heat transfer. The supply also includes the steam and condensate system, the Yankee coating spray boom, a new forming roll, as well as the complete overhaul service of press rolls. 

In response to the customer’s request for the fastest possible delivery, Toscotec further refined the production time and was able to deliver the Steel Yankee Dryer in record time. Since the opening of Massa Technology Lab in 2016, an integrated plant dedicated to the production of Steel Yankee Dryers, Toscotec has sought to optimize the manufacturing process of its TT SYD and shortened their delivery period

Jesús Feris Ferrús, César Iglesias Technical Director, says, “When we selected the supplier for this investment, we thought that the TT SYD’s superior performance and short delivery time made it the most competitive choice in the market. This was our first cooperation with Toscotec and we have been positively impressed by their technical and project management team. The energy efficiency of the TT SYD will allow us to reduce the manufacturing cost of our tissue line and give us a competitive advantage in the market.”

Simone Pieruccini, Toscotec’s Pressure Vessel Technical Manager, says, “As soon as we understood the customer’s need for a fast delivery, we rearranged the production schedule, in order to reduce the construction time as much as we could. From a technical point of view, we were in tune with César Iglesias’ team, which made our first cooperation very easy for everybody.”

The César Iglesias Group thus enters the tissue market, starting the production and converting of toilet tissue, paper towels and napkins.

New tissue machine installations in Italy. 

Toscotec has strengthened its leadership position in the Italian tissue market, based on new machine installations in the last five years. Since 2015, Toscotec has received five orders from Italian tissue producers for their paper mills located in Italy.

They include two complete tissue lines for Eurovast’s Cartiera della Basilica. One line replaced an older machine and has been in operations since 2015 at its Bagni di Lucca mill. The other line is been installed at Eurovast Botticino mill and is currently scheduled to start production in the last quarter of 2019. 

In 2017, a Toscotec-supplied tissue machine came online at a confidential paper mill in the South of Italy.

In November 2018, Lucart fired up an AHEAD-2.0S tissue line at its Porcari mill. 

2019 09 26 083241

This year, Toscotec received a major turnkey supply order from Cartiera Confalone S.p.A., who is scheduled to start up a new AHEAD 2.2 tissue line in 2020. The project includes the entire tissue making line from the pulper conveyor belts to two OPTIMA 2200 slitter rewinders.

Toscotec’s energy efficient technology has won over the Italian tissue market and raised the bar on performance and reliability, by introducing TT NextPress on Lucart’s AHEAD-2.0S machine, which represents the first shoe press ever installed in Italy.

Cooperation with Italy-based International Groups. 

Apart from new installations in Italy, Toscotec also cooperates with International groups headquartered in Italy on a number of projects outside of the Italian territory. In 2018, it started a close cooperation with the Sofidel Group on their new Oklahoma plant, for the turnkey supply of two AHEAD-2.0L tissue lines currently undergoing erection. In 2017, Toscotec rebuilt on a turnkey basis PM10 of Lucart Laval sur Vologne mill in France, by modifying the wire and felt sections and supplying a new TT SYD and the steam & condensate system. 

Foreign tissue manufacturers in Italy.

The strong partnership between Toscotec and the German Wepa Group also led to two important rebuilding projects in Italy, at Wepa Lucca and Wepa Cassino mills. The former involved the rebuild into crescent former of an old machine, followed by a speed-up upgrade. The latter was carried out in three steps, from the rebuild into crescent former in 2009 to the supply of a new TT Headbox and TT SYD and the rebuild of the stock preparation system in 2015.

The high degree of customization of Toscotec’s tissue plants represents an invaluable source of success on the Italian as well as international markets. In recent years, Toscotec has made significant investments to equip itself with the most advanced engineering tools and to support the high level of specialization of its technical department, in order to respond to the market increasingly greater request for tailor-made plants. 

The fact that tissue producers such as Eurovast, Lucart and others have repeatedly selected Toscotec for the supply of their new tissue lines and rebuilds is proof that its technology is recognized by the Italian tissue market as well established and highly reliable. Based on these results, Toscotec consolidated its position as market leader for the design and supply of tissue machinery in Italy.

Maintenance managers and supervisors in tissue mills are required to work to budget and cut the costs of maintenance wherever possible. An efficient management of your TT SYD (Steel Yankee Dryer) helps reduce maintenance costs and avoiding the risk of emergency stops.  

What to do to reduce the maintenance cost of your TT SYD:

1. PERIODIC STRUCTURAL CHECKS & NDE

Within 2 years after start-up and every 5 years after the first inspection, you should perform structural checks and NDE of the structural welds and connecting bolts of your Yankee, according the following Non Destructive Examination (NDE) methods: Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), single beam Ultrasonic Testing (UT) and automated ultrasonic testing (Phased Array - PA and Time Of Flight Diffraction - TOFD). 

2019 09 19 223802

This will ensure compliance with the requirements of your local pressure vessel regulations and insurance.

2. CHECK YOUR SYD INTERNALLY & THE CONDENSATE REMOVAL SYSTEM 

Once a year, plan an internal inspection of your TT SYD and its condensate removal system. 

Make sure you thoroughly clean the soda straws - one by one, from the bottom of the grooves - and their blocking clips. Check inside the straws if there is any magnetite: its build-up may be a sign of corrosion. This clean up will also ensure a uniform moisture profile on the paper. You should also check the sealing of the condensate removal pipes, to ensure maximum heat transfer efficiency. 

3. CHECK THE STEAM & CONDENSATE SYSTEM’S WATER QUALITY

The chemical parameters of the boiler’s water circuit and of the Yankee’s condensate must remain within the recommended ranges. This will ensure the smooth operation of the boiler, of the steam and condensate system and of the equipment and machinery integrated in this circuit, including your TT SYD and the instrumentation. 

You should continuously monitor the key chemical parameters and make periodical tests, to ensure that the water quality is under control. Increase the frequency of the tests if you suspect there is a contamination in the steam and condensate system.

If the water quality is under control, you should see a thin and uniform layer of magnetite (black oxide, Fe3O4) that adheres tightly on the internal surfaces of your TT SYD. This layer creates a barrier to possible corrosion.

4. VISUAL CHECK OF THE METALIZED COATED SURFACE

Perform a visual inspection of the metalized surface on each shutdown of the paper machine. A scratch or localized damage on the metalized coating may significantly affect the runnability of your SYD. In this case, you should consider making a spot repair of the damage. If you see chatter marks, consider checking the doctor blades for vibration, the machine frame for vibration resonance, the chemical coating application and the process parameters in general for large variances from centerlines.

5. MEASURE THE ROUGHNESS OF THE METALIZED COATED SURFACE 

Once a year, measure the roughness of the metalized coated surface. This will allow you to better understand the status of the metallization, in terms of chemical coating, blades, etc. If you find an increasing porosity of the metalized coating, consider planning a polishing/grinding job, before it starts affecting paper quality.

6. CHECK THE JOURNALS INSULATING SLEEVES 

The insulating sleeves protect the bearings, especially during warm-up of the Yankee. Once a year, check if the insulation sleeves are working properly by using a contact thermometer to measure the temperature of the Yankee journals during production. Once every 5 years, perform a pressure test or dismantle the insulating sleeve pipes (depending on your type of sleeve), in order to verify the conditions and good functioning of the sleeves. Repair or replace any damaged part. It is good practice to replace the gaskets and insulation packing/wrap after 5 years of operation.

7. CHECK THE DECKLE INSULATION

At least once a year, during ordinary maintenance, check the tightening of the SYD deckle insulation screws. This is important to avoid any possible damage due to their fall and passage between the press and the Yankee, and it ensures a safe working area for the operators. 

At least once a year, you should also thoroughly clean the deckle insulating panels. If the TT SYD is at room temperature, you may use high-pressure water to do so. This clean up eliminates the risk of possible damage to the panels and to the components adjacent to the Yankee, due to build-up of fibers and chemicals. 

8. CHECK THE DOCTOR BLADES SETTING

The doctor blades should be of the right length and mounted cantered in the middle, to make sure that they cover the Yankee’s surface completely during the oscillation of their support. Usually, the rule is LBLADE = LYD – LOSCILLATION.

If you use oscillating doctor blade holders, make sure that their movement is smooth and steady. Jerky movements may cause grooves or streaks on the metallization. This will eliminate the risk of damaging the surface of the metalized coating and will increase its lifetime.

9. CHECK THE STEAM ROTARY JOINTS

Check the wear level of the sealing graphite according to the indications of the supplier. If it exceeds the max allowable wear, replace the sealing graphite during machine stop and with the steam rotary joints at room temperature.  

10. CHECK THE TIR 

Once a year, measure the TIR (Total Indicated Runout) of your TT SYD. Measure the TIR at grinding pressure and with the paper sheet off. You may also do this measurement in cold conditions, to get a rough indication of roundness status of your SYD. A TIR test helps you identifying possible problems and creating a database of reference records. 

11. LONG-TERM SHUTDOWN OF TT SYD

In case of long-term shutdown, remove all the condensate inside the Yankee dryer, clean the heads/deckle insulation panels and remember to rotate the Yankee by 90° once every two days.
