Toscotec with its associate Milltech have been awarded a contract to deliver a major dry-end rebuild of the ISMA 2000 S.L. PM 1 in La Torre de Claramunt, Barcelona- Spain. The start-up of the rebuilt machine is scheduled for the beginning of 2016.
ISMA 2000 SL, is a familiar Company, with operating centers in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands The main business in Barcelona, is the production and processing of tissue products, while in Mallorca the activity is focused on the collection and recovery of waste paper. The main recognized company products are from 100% recycled paper and include: AFH towel, Kitchen rolls, sheets stretcher rolls, napkins, toilet paper.
Toscotec’s delivery includes a major rebuild of the PM1 dry end section, which will be replaced with a TT DOES (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving) package. This will features a new TT SYD-3600MM provided with Toscotec patented solution for head insulation, a new Yankee steam & condensate system and a Duo-system Yankee hood, SMART type, from Milltech.
Engineering, training start up and commissioning services are also included in the package.
The aim of the rebuild is to increase the production and the performances of the crescent former machine up to 90 tpd. This is the decision that has driven ISMA 2000 to apply for the TT DOES package from Toscotec.
“Our broad conclusion after a deep technical evaluation – says Fernando Luz, Company General Manager, – is that we are forced either to increase output for the same or less specific energy consumption input. Toscotec large experience and reliable approach with its proven TT DOES package, already applied in several mills working conditions worldwide, has matched our requirement in this direction. This rebuild completes the one already initiated in the phase of pulp treatment allowing us to use complex raw material with high quality fibers and increasing efficiency and reducing energy consumption”
