Toscotec will supply a second-generation TT SYD Steel Yankee Dryer to the Colombian tissue manufacturer Cartones Y Papeles Del Risaralda. The new TT SYD will replace a cast iron Yankee on PM1 at its Risaralda mill in Western Colombia.
Toscotec’s Steel Yankee dryer will increase PM1’s production capacity, while reducing its overall specific consumptions through a substantial reduction of the hoods’ drying contribution.
The TT SYD has a 3,200 mm diameter, a face length of 2,920 mm and it features Toscotec’s patented deckle insulation system, which ensures high thermal energy efficiency and maximum safety. The scope also includes the steam and condensate removal system, steam joints, bearings and housings. Toscotec will deliver a complete service package including engineering, erection supervision, onsite training, commissioning and start-up assistance.
C. Y. P. Del R. S.A., said, “This investment aims at increasing the effectiveness of our operations. We chose TT SYD based on its great reliability and superior energy efficiency. When we selected the supplier for this rebuild, we were looking for the best solution to increase our production capacity. Toscotec customized the equipment specifically for our needs and offered us the possibility of reducing our manufacturing cost as well. This winning combination represents a key asset to sustain our growth.”
Gabriele Romanini, Sales Manager at Toscotec, said, “We are happy to begin this cooperation with Cartones Y Papeles Del Risaralda. We are confident that TT SYD will meet their expectations in terms of superior drying capacity and energy efficiency, providing them with a competitive advantage in the market.”

Over 200 TT SYDs are currently operating all over the world, contributing to the build-up of a substantial database of different operating conditions, which drive and advance Toscotec’s expert services and continuous engineering progress on steel Yankee dryers.
