APP has successfully started up a Prodergy AHEAD-2.0L tissue machine at its Perawang mill, Indonesia.

Supplied by Toscotec, the supplier said its 22 ft diameter Steel Yankee dryer constitutes a world record: the biggest steel Yankee dryer ever manufactured worldwide for tissue application.

The Perawang line is 5.6m width and has an operating speed of 2,000m/min. It features a second generation TT SYD-22FT and steamheated hoods.

It is one in a series of TMs to be installed by the supplier at APP’s Indonesian sites. Toscotec added that due to its design, the TM delivers the “highest dryness rate with minimum consumption”.
