Steel and cast iron Yankee dryers

Lessons of the past for a high performing future - explore Valmet's Yankee dryers

Recorded webinar

The yankee dryer is a central part of all common tissue making machines and processes. Its basic design has remained unchanged for over 100 years. In the 1990’s steel fabricated yankee dryers became a viable alternative to cast iron for the manufacturing of creped tissue papers. 

In this Tissue Talks we look back at some of the arguments brought forward comparing steel versus cast iron. What have we learned in the last 15 years? What remains to be further investigated?
