In the summer of 2020, NEW eco-tec Verfahrenstechnik GmbH was assigned by a Turkish manufacturer of paper and cardboard with the planning, production, assembly and commissioning of a turnkey drying system. With an annual production of over one million tons, our customer is the largest paper producer in Turkey and is one of the largest in Europe.
Our customer uses 100% recycled paper and, in its pioneering role as an ISO-certified company, is committed to recycling, resource conservation and energy efficiency.
The drying system, supplied by us, makes a significant contribution to this. Process heat, which occurs in the form of steam during the production process for cardboard, is used in the dryer, model NEWtainer ALLinDRYer WT-Z, to dry waste products from the production process, such as paper sludge and paper residues.
Every year around 40,000 tons of sludge are dried from 30% DM to 85% DM.
The maximum evaporation rate is 3.2 tons of water per hour. The customer uses a waste product to produce fuel for his boiler system. The heat generated is used for the production process and thus again for drying.
After only four months of planning, design and production, the modular, prefabricated drying system was transported to Turkey on 16 trucks at the beginning of January 2021. Installation and commissioning is planned for February 2021 and will only take a total of five weeks. In this way, the ongoing production process at the customer's site is hardly disturbed and the system is ready for use after a very short time.
