Japan’s Oji Group has boosted its capacity after it invested in a Steel Yankee Dryer to be installed at its production site in Kasugai.
The TT SYD will be supplied by Toscotec and has a diameter of 12ft and a face length of 5,750mm. It will replace the existing deteriorated Yankee Dryer.
The installation of the TT SYD-12FT is scheduled for the end of 2014.
Toscotec said the dryer’s new design provides an optimisation of the internal grooves and the reduction of the nominal thickness of the cylinder involves a more efficient heat exchange; this increased drying capacity then enables an increased performance of the machine in terms of production and speed.
Established in 1873, the Oji Group has been a leader in the pulp and paper industry in Japan for over a hundred years.
