This book is an updated combination of Guidelines for Safety and Condition Assessment (1992) and Guidelines for the Safe Operation of Yankee Dryers (1995).

Safety is the responsibility of each dryer manufacturer and operator. This publication was prepared by volunteers of TAPPI’s Yankee Dryer Safety Subcommittee for the purpose of providing suggested guidelines to aid in the safe operation and management of Yankee dryers. These guidelines do not supersede dryer manufacturers’ operations manuals and do not purport to cover all possible applicable regulatory requirements.

Topics Include:
      - The Corporate Yankee Dryer Safety System
      - Design differences: TAD, DC, MG, and hybrid
      - Inspection Practices and Principles
      - Operations Monitoring
      - Protection Devices
      - Repairs and Alterations
