The ISMA 2000 PM#1 has been started up smoothly according to the time schedule, after a major dry-end rebuild delivered by Toscotec. The delivery agreement of the new drying technology for the tissue line was signed by ISMA 2000 S.L. and Toscotec S.p.A. in June 2015.

"Toscotec's commitment was to deliver to the spanish producer the latest edge-technologies in tissue drying to create a further reference in rebuilding projects to increase efficiency and cut operating costs. With great satisfaction we announce that the rebuild has allowed ISMA 2000 S.L. to increase the productivity of the tissue machine of 30 %.”  said Davide Mainardi, Sales & Customer Care Director of Toscotec S.p.A..

The delivery included a Steel Yankee Dryer TT SYD-3600MM provided with Toscotec patented solution for head insulation, a yankee steam & condensate system and a new hood, TT Milltech-SMYH Hood type, with high level of heat recovery.

Fernando Luz , ISMA General Manager, said : “To invest in TT DOES (Drying Optimization for Energy Saving) package has been the right move to continue our project, based on an intensive energy-saving concept, already initiated in the phase of pulp treatment. Today we are able to produce 100% recycled hygienic tissue by using  complex raw material with high  quality fibers and less specific energy consumption input”.
