Yankee Dryers are one of the most dangerous and costly areas of a tissue mill. This active group of Yankee Dryer owner/users and service providers work to expand knowledge of safe operating and maintenance practices. The committee's goal is to develop standard practices and standards for problems which cause drying system delay and compromise safety across the tissue industry.
