Panda Paper Mills (1997), a subsidiary of Israeli leading manufacturer Sano Enterprises, has selected Toscotec for the supply of a complete drying section rebuild of PM1 at their Netanya production facility in Israel. PM1 produces high quality tissue from recycled fibres for the Away from Home market. The upgrade aims to substantially increase the machine’s drying capacity and is planned for the second half of 2024.
Toscotec will supply a TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer of latest generation, the entire steam and condensate removal system and high-efficiency TT Hoods. The service package includes the engineering, erection supervision, training, commissioning and start-up assistance. The new dryer section is set to slash PM1’s energy consumptions and increase production efficiency.
Eliran Elbaz, Vice President Paper & Complementary Products Division of Sano Bruno’s Enterprises, says, “Toscotec’s state-of-the-art technology will allow us to raise the bar on our paper products portfolio. Their added value is key for our customer base, and we keep on investing and working towards this goal.”
Fabio Bargiacchi, Sales Manager at Toscotec, says, “We are happy to partner with Sano Group on this major technological upgrade. The combined advantages of TT SYD and TT Hood will deliver a drastic increase of PM1’s energy efficiency and ensure thermal energy consumption reductions, as well as capacity increase.”
