Heat recovery plays a crucial role in energy-efficiency and in creating stable drying conditions. It provides excellent opportunities for reducing costs and increasing profitability. OptiAir Recovery is a part of Valmet’s OptiAir family which is designed for optimal and controlled drying conditions and working environment for paper and board machines.
Main purpose of heat recovery system is to replace primary energy with recovered heat from the process in an economically profitable way. Total heat recovery in a modern paper or board machine can be over 50 MW. This is equivalent to 86 tsteam/h, therefore the energy flows are significant. It is important to utilize this energy efficiently. OptiAir Recovery heat recovery solutions provide excellent possibilities for optimizing the energy and air flows in paper and board making.
