The audit highlights maintenance and technological deficits in the approach flow system. Optimization measures often lead to improvements with an ROI of much less than two years.
The Wet End Process audit includes an inspection of the system to assess the problem and define measures for improvement regarding machines and process. In addition, a stock and water balance is established. In the subsequent evaluation, the existing system is measured against the best technology currently available. Future objectives and necessary adaptations are defined. The list of recommendations simplifies further detailed investigations in the future by Voith or third parties.
The audit is for optimizing the approach flow system to prevent productivity or quality problems due to machine operation malfunctions such as deposits, pulsations, stock consistency variations, inefficient cleaning or screening and unnecessary fiber loss.
M&D chemical technology covers hidden optimization potentials at the interface of machine and chemistry in the manufacturing process and compiles concrete measures to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
