ANDRITZ starts up new high-temperature Yankee hood and air system at Kartogroup, Spain

ANDRITZ has successfully started up the new high-temperature PrimeDry Hood HT and air system supplied for the rebuild of a tissue machine at Kartogroup España’s mill in Burriana, Spain.

Pascual Gómez, COO of Kartogroup, said: “The rebuild will significantly reduce gas and steam consumption and lower emissions at our mill, making our production more sustainable and cost-effective. Thanks to the seamless collaboration and personalized approach of the ANDRITZ team, the entire project went smoothly and was completed on schedule.”

The new equipment installed on the PM4 tissue machine features an optimized impingement distribution of the hood nozzle boxes, a heat recovery system, a state-of-the-art burner management system and Yankee head insulation. These solutions maximize the hood drying performance while reducing the specific energy consumption. They also result in increased safety and a significant reduction of CO2 emissions.

ANDRITZ’s scope of supply also included installation supervision, commissioning, training, and start-up assistance.

Kartogroup España S.L., a member of the Cominter Group, has more than 40 years’ experience in the tissue business. At its mills in Burriana and Hernani, Spain, the company produces high-quality tissue for household and industrial applications.
