Reliable and optimum operation of the pulp drying process at high speed levels also requires sophisticated automation and control systems. DryWay is the new Valmet concept developed for pulp drying. The automated process covers process, machine, drive and quality controls, as well as condition monitoring and baling management. Today, pulp drying follows the trends in fiber line technology calling for large single lines for achieving the best overall economy. The ultimate goal is a single pulp drying line with capacity for matching that of new Greenfield megamills. Reaching this goal requires a totally new capacity level and faster drying machines.
