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.

The new equipment installed on the PM4 tissue machine features an optimised 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 maximise 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.
