Turkish tissue producer Parteks has boosted its tissue capacity after it invested in a new tissue line.

The Toscotec-supplied line will be installed in Kayseri in the Central Anatolian region and start-up is expected in the first half of 2014.

Founded in 1996, 300-staffed Parteks Paper is a fully integrated manufacturer of tissue paper for household and community, corrugated cardboard and fluting paper.

The tissue paper is produced with recycled paper and virgin pulp, with tissue brands including Panda and Senta.

The existing plant houses a TM1, a tissue machine that started up in 2007 and PM1, a fluting machine and corrugating line.

A converting facility for tissue is close to the plant.

Toscotec said the project will be focused on reduced energy consumptions, usage of selected raw materials in the manufacturing process, recovery and re-usage of the process water, low emissions (noise and pollutants) as well as on green energy adoption with the application of a Steel Yankee dryer technology.

Delivery is based on an intensive energy-saving concept and includes the approach flow featuring ultimate Toscotec technology TT SAF®, broke line, a MODULO-PLUS tissue machine with single-layer headbox, single press configuration and Toscotec steel Yankee dryer TT SYD-12FT.

Supply will also comprise an electrification and controls package, tissue machine auxiliaries like a natural gas heated hood, steam and condensate system, provided by Toscotec associate Milltech.

A two unwind stands Toscotec rewinder TT WIND-P will complete the package.

The machine has a width of 2,85m and a design speed of 1600mpm, and it will produce 75 tonnes a day of high-quality facial, toilet and towel grades.
