Hoods and air systems for Yankee dryer

Impingement jet drying using high-capacity hoods for Yankee dryers is one of the most energy-intensive drying methods in paper manufacturing.

Design and production quality have a decisive impact on the uniformity of the drying process and thus on the moisture CD profile and paper quality, as well as on the energy consumption and service life of the Yankee dryer hood.

If you wish to replace your hood, save energy or increase the drying performance of your Yankee dryer we offer you optimally matched and customized systems:

Standard hoods and air systems

  • Yankee hoods for Yankee dryer up to 510°C operating temperature
