German containerboard manufacturer Aviretta selected Toscotec to rebuild the post dryer section of its PM4 at Ettringen mill, Bavaria. PM4 produces test liner and fluting from 60 to 130 g/m². Start-up is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.
Toscotec will supply nine TT SteelDryers of over 7 m face width, which will replace PM4’s existing cast iron cylinders. The scope includes condensate spoiler bars, steam joints, bearings and housings, and spares. Aviretta also ordered a comprehensive service package, with engineering, on site disassembly, erection, commissioning, and start-up.
Carl Pawlowsky, Executive Partner of Aviretta GmbH, said: “I was very impressed with Toscotec’s technical proposal, due to the quality of its TT SteelDryers, their wide installed base, and Toscotec’s substantial experience in the field. We expect to be able to count on a very reliable product with high performance in the long term.”
Giancarlo Gianlorenzi, Toscotec’s Sales Manager, said, “We are proud to be recognized in a technological market such as Germany. With this new project, Toscotec is confirmed as the benchmark supplier of dryer section rebuilds of large format and high speed paper machines. We are happy to start a new partnership with Aviretta, and are confident that our TT SteelDryers will satisfy their reliability and quality requirements. The schedule of the rebuild is rather tight, but we will meet their expectations.”
