The PAPTAC Papermaking Technology Committee (PMTC) and TAPPI’s Papermaking Technology and Operations Committee will be co-hosting a new webinar on August 13 on “Thermocompressor Applications for Paper Drying”.
Thermocompressors are often misunderstood, overlooked, and misapplied in the paper industry. This webinar will include information from TAPPI TIP 0404-66, which describes thermocompressors in general from their applications, performance and limitations, to control methods as applied to the paper industry. As numerous paper machines are being modernized and converted from producing graphic papers to containerboard, the proper application of thermocompressors is more important than ever.
