Mixing Area

Mixing Area

In between Stock preparation and Approach flow areas, the various types of fibers need to be mixed in the correct proportion in order to get the desired finished product quality.

In that Mixing Area, a central innovation is the replacement of the mixing chest, agitator and discharge pump with a simple component which performs the functions of all these elements: the TT Mix. 

Therefore, this device makes the mixing of different fiber types possible even where there is not enough place for a mixing chest.

TT Mix.
The TT Mix looks similar to a common funnel but Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) studies allowed Toscotec to discover the secrets to design it for maximum performances on each different application. The key to success is to introduce the substances to be mixed in very specific way into the TT Mix and then leave to the efficient vortex action of the customized designed funnel to provide effective mixing. By using these principles, Toscotec solution has no need for a static mixer.

Since it is very compact, the TT Mix sensibly reduces space requirements and energy consumption. Its very little volume helps significantly in minimizing the grade and color change time. This is usually enhanced by reducing also the machine chest volume, in combination with the TT Mix.

Blending inside it is so effective that chemical consumption can be reduced.

Additionally, the TT Mix is very easy to be cleaned and there are no movable parts to be maintained.

This innovative solution has been patented by Toscotec several years ago and since then many companies acknowledge its advantages.

Product finder

Broke Pulper

TT MBP. The Toscotec Broke Pulper TT MBP is designed to be installed under machine both in tissue, paper and board applications.

Rotating Screen

TT RS. The Toscotec Rotating Screen TT RS is used in recycled paper stock preparation plants to de-water the coarse rejects coming from upstream cleaning equipment.


TT RG. For the proper performance of a continuous pulper working with recycled paper (Toscotec Low Density Pulper), a cleaning unit such as the ragger TT RG is required to be installed.

Low Density Pulper

TT TM. Optimized to work with heavily contaminated recycled paper or with rewinder trims, the Toscotec Low Density Pulper TT TM is designed to perform an extremely efficient and low energy slushing in continuous mode and to remove rejects without breaking them.

Medium Density Pulper

TT VP. Suitable to work both with virgin pulp, broke, recycled paper and non-wood fibers, the Toscotec Medium Density pulper TT VP is designed to perform an extremely efficient and low energy slushing in discontinuous mode.

Turbo Separator

TT TMC. The Toscotec Turboseparator TT TMC is installed in recycled paper stock preparation lines as primary screen to treat the accept stream of the Toscotec Low Density Pulper.

Vortiscreen 3 Series

TT VS-3. The Toscotec Vortiscreen TT VS-3 can be installed as the only coarse screen in converting broke lines or as the last tail screening stage for the treatment of the rejects coming from drilled Toscotec Superscreens in recycled paper processing lines.

Vortiscreen 1 Series

TT VS-1. The Toscotec Vortiscreen TT VS-1 is used in recycled paper stock preparation plants mainly for the detrashing of the continuous TM Pulpers and as a dumping machine of high consistency batch pulpers.


TT SS. The Toscotec Superscreen TT SS is a horizontal screen with basket and rotor designed to be installed as a coarse or fine screen in recycled paper stock preparation plants. It is optimal to treat stock up to a working consistency of 5%.

High Density Cleaner

TT HDC. Engineered to work both with virgin pulp and recycled paper, the Toscotec High Density Cleaner TT HDC is designed to reliably remove heavier than fiber contaminants, suspended in consistencies up to 6%, directly after the pulper.

Thickening Screw

TT CA. The Toscotec Thickening Screw TT CA is an inclined screw thickener; it can be configured as a Single Unit or as Combined Units (up to 3 Units on a single stand and with only one feeding headbox) for higher capacity and reduced footprint.

Wire Washer

TT CW. The Toscotec Wire Washer TT CW is used to obtain an efficient removal of ashes, inks, glues, and fines by means of low consistency stock washing and consequent thickening.

Short Approach Flow System

TT SAF. Toscotec Short Approach Flow TT SAF, patented by Toscotec since 2012, allows every mill, new or existing one, to reduce energy consumptions and installation space, without compromises in terms of performances.

Vibrating Screen

TT V. The Toscotec Vibrating Screen TT V can be used as final stage for rejects de-watering after other screens such as vortiscreens, superscreens and pressure screens.

Pressure Screen

TT AFS. The Toscotec Pressure Screen TT AFS is designed to be installed in the approach flow system as final protection of the headbox.
