Results with improvement process

Drying efficiency improvement solutions are targeted at maximizing the drying efficiency and capacity of your dryer section.

  • Savings in steam consumption
  • Electricity savings due to optimally operated air fans
  • Potential for production increase through higher drying capacity
  • Better paper quality through optimized drying process

Runnability improvement solutions address tail threading and runnability problems in the dryer section area and increase your production efficiency.

  • Improved time efficiency due to reduced break and tail threading time
  • Increased machine speed through improved runnability
  • Reduced energy waste through fewer breaks
  • Optimal paper quality and raw materials usage thanks to improved sheet support and lower draw

Profile management helps to maintain even moisture profiles throughout your dryer section.

  • Improved runnability through better sheet strength and release properties
  • Potential for speed increase through better runnability and reduced need to overdry the sheet
  • Raw materials savings through furnish optimization
  • Steam savings due to optimized sheet dry content
  • Better paper quality due to uniform moisture profiles

Condition management is designed to keep your dryer section in optimal shape and clean for high production efficiency and availability. Systematic planning and prioritizing will cut your maintenance costs.

  • Improved machine condition and cleanliness ensure high production efficiency
  • Upgrades reduce overall need for maintenance
  • Reduced drive power consumption through optimized doctoring
