With its Steam Technology Optimization Package, Voith provides tailored customer solutions for drying paper in combination with cylinder installations.
Optimization of the steam technology in a paper facility is carried out in four steps. Voith experts initially localize problems and potentials during an advisory discussion on site. A detailed study is subsequently conducted in which, depending on the need, one of three optimization aspects is emphasized: energy optimization, capacity increase or machine ventilation technology. An individual report – including recording and evaluation of the measurement results, suggested solutions, and budgeting with a calculation of the ROI – is then prepared for the module chosen.
In the third step, implementation of the suggested measures takes place, while the fourth step involves optional follow-up support.
Optimization of steam technology is a useful tool for paper drying of all paper machines.
