About the Webinar

Thermocompressors are often misunderstood, overlooked, and misapplied in the paper industry.  Tappi TIP 0404-66 describes thermocompressors in general from their applications, performance, 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.  The change in machine operating conditions can lead to thermocompressors that no longer match the syphon design resulting in higher differential pressures than required or higher motive steam consumption. This is also a common problem for dryer syphons that have been converted from rotary to stationary without re-sizing the thermocompressor.
