International technology Group ANDRITZ has successfully launched a new service package to increase the performance and life cycle of drying cylinders (Yankees). With over 100 projects successfully completed, ANDRITZ is one of the leading suppliers of cast and steel Yankees worldwide.
The service package includes PrimeCoat Stratos, a thermal solution for full-face coating and spot repairs. With this new coating technology, which can be implemented directly at the customer?s site, the Yankee’s strength can be increased by up to 20% and porosity reduced by 2% (compared to the market standard). This results in better heat conductivity and operating efficiency. In the past three years, PrimeCoat Stratos has been applied successfully on more than 25 steel Yankees, most recently for the two tissue machines supplied to Shin-Ei Paper, Japan.
In addition, the ANDRITZ service package offers a new mobile grinding unit and on-the-run measurements. The grinding unit can extend the lifetime of the Yankee, while the measurements – most recently conducted at C&S Paper, China, and Zellstoff Pöls, Austria – improve runability, safety, and performance of the system.
The new service package is available for existing machines as well as for new machines (regardless of the supplier) and is designed especially for the production of tissue, paper and board, machine-glazed paper, and cigarette paper.
