Roundtable: Dryer Section Performance Monitoring, 1997 Engineering Conference Proceedings

Regular monitoring of dryer section performance can help ensure that machine performance is optimized and can direct maintenance and troubleshooting efforts before minor problems get worse. Monitoring can be done by mill operations, technical, engineering and maintenance personnel; clothing and equipment suppliers; corporate technical groups; and/or independent consultants.

Some of the top dryer section diagnosticians and troubleshooters in the industry will discuss mill experiences and recommendations to increase capacity, reduce energy consumption, improve runnability and machine efficiency, and level cross-machine profiles.

Items to be discussed include:

What are the key areas to monitor? Who should monitor what? How often? How do you interpret results? What should you look at during normal operation, sheet breaks, shutdowns, and annual outages? What are current trends for improving dryer section performance?
