Do High-Efficiency Thermocompressors Save Steam?
High-efficiency thermocompressors do offer a higher entrainment ratio which means a lower motive steam (high-pressure) flow is required.
Examining Yankee Health by Understanding Blade Wear
The tissue making industry is dynamic with new assets under construction, older assets that are aging and paying the bills, and on the back end of the process, assets that are being retired and scrapped.

Having a basic knowledge about particle size measurement, total suspended solids, fluid types, and filtration screen basics is helpful when determining the correct filtration system to implement or when troubleshooting a challenging system.
Mike Sneary, Business Development Manger at Kadant Johnson, started with the company in 1980.
Steam flows are commonly measured to monitor dryer section energy consumption. The total steam flow, however, does not provide enough information to assess energy efficiency.
Why is it important to use OEM genuine parts when repairing your equipment? Here are three simple, yet important, reasons.
Most thermocompressor sections are equipped with a non-condensable bleed (NCB) which are are applied to thermocompressor sections to prevent accumulation of non-condensable gases in the dryers.
