Mirae Paper boosts high-quality capacity with Steel Yankee

Mirae Paper has invested in a Toscotec-supplied TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer to be delivered to its Jeonju paper mill.

It will replace PM2’s existing cast-iron cylinder and is scheduled for start-up in the second half of 2022.

Yeong Rok Lee, Mirae Paper’s Production Manager, said: “The Steel Yankee on PM3 has been operating efficiently for over eight years, allowing us to reduce our thermal energy consumption by a significant amount.

“We expect the new Yankee on PM2 to be as reliable and to deliver even higher performances.

“We consider the Yankee dryer to be the core component of our tissue machine’s drying capacity.”

Toscotec said the third-generation design “benefits from an ideal ratio of the weight, width and pitch of the internal ribs and the optimisation of the shell thickness”.
