The two CrescentFormer tissue machines (TM13, TM15) of the type PrimeLineST W8 have a design speed of 1,900 m/min, a paper width of 5.6 m, and a total design capacity of up to 120,000 tons of tissue per year. The machines process pre-dried bleached bamboo pulp, NBKP and LBKP market pulp to produce high-quality facial tissue, toilet paper, paper towels, handkerchiefs, and napkins. Both tissue machines are equipped with an 18 ft. PrimeDry Steel Yankee and a PrimeDry Hood ST with steam heating to enable highly efficient drying while saving energy.
Toscotec has recently introduced TT Defender, a leading-edge patented innovation that provides Yankee dryers with an effective internal protection coating against corrosive steam. Toscotec has successfully tested TT Defender at Lucart Group’s Diecimo tissue mill in Italy on a TT SYD that came online in February 2020.
