Spain's Kartogroup boosts capacity with a new Andritz Novimpianti-supplied Steel Yankee

Kartogroup España has invested in an Andritz-supplied PrimeDry Steel Yankee and air and energy systems for its Burriana mill in Spain.  

Start-up is scheduled for the summer of 2021, and the turnkey order includes a Steel Yankee with steam and condensate system for the PM2 tissue machine, as well as two dust removal systems for PM2 and PM4.  

Andritz Novimpianti will provide the complete project management, commissioning and start-up for all these key components. 

The Steel Yankee will have a diameter of 14 ft. and shell length of 3m.  

According to the supplier, the PrimeDry SC steam and condensate system for PM2 will regulate the steam supply, distributes the steam properly inside the Yankee, removes the condensate, and controls reuse of the condensate and blow-through steam.
