We also review the different levels of Yankee dryer inspections ranging from visual inspections to fitness for service inspections. The topic will ultimately cover how maintaining a safe Yankee dryer not only helps to ensure a safe environment for those working around the Yankee but also adds life and longevity to the asset.
