Matched to your needs

The most important benefits of Valmet Advantage Yankee dryers come down to two words: proven and choice. Matched exactly to your needs, rest assured you have top safety, availability, long service life and excellent performance along with simple design, quality materials and high-precision machining and welding.

Adaptable to different processes

In addition to principal requirements from the Yankee, such as safety and drying performance, there are also specific needs for different paper making processes. Conventional processes typically mean wide operating ranges and high pressing loads in combination with demands for uniformity and low vibration levels. Emerging hybrid processes, like the Advantage NTT technology for manufacturing textured tissue, as well as the Advantage ThruAir or TAD process for structured tissue, require the Yankee dryer to function at varying condensing rates, withstand high doctor loads and have a surface susceptible to specialized process chemicals.
