Spain’s Kartogroup boosts high-quality tissue capacity with Yankee hood rebuild

Spain’s Kartogroup has started up its Andritz-supplied PrimeDry Hood HT and air system, supplied for the rebuild of a tissue machine at its España’s mill in Burriana.

The equipment installed on the PM4 tissue machine features an optimised impingement distribution of the hood nozzle boxes, a heat recovery system, a state-of-the-art burner management system and Yankee head insulation.

Supplier Andritz said the technology “maximises the hood drying performance while reducing the specific energy consumption.”

It added it also results in increased safety and a significant reduction of CO2 emissions.

Pascual Gómez, Chief Operation Officer of Kartogroup, said: “The rebuild will significantly reduce gas and steam consumption and lower emissions at our mill, making our production more sustainable and cost-effective.”

Established over 40 years ago, Kartogroup España is a member of the Cominter Group and has tissue mills in Burriana and Hernani, Spain.

It produces high-quality tissue for household and industrial applications.
