Engineering to Installation
Our expert team will support you in developing custom engineering solutions for paper machine runnability, energy efficiency and building ventilation.
Our North American manufacturing facility maintains the highest standards of production and quality.
Enerquin offers a full range of air systems audits for paper, board and tissue makers. Our experts perform onsite measurements during normal operating conditions without any interruption to production. These studies will help optimize your process, solve quality or runnability problems, increase production efficiency, and improve environmental compliance. The surveys can be followed by performance improvement projects with a scope of work customized for the type of production.
Complete and Comprehensive Survey Report:
- Summary of recommendations with budget prices
- List of priorities
- Dryer performance and hood balance
- Process and building air systems performance
- Inspection observations
- Flow diagrams and charts
- Calculation sheets
The report will list a series of short-term, mid-term and long-term recommendations crucial for optimizing the hood process air systems and improving the drying performance (KPIs).
Optimization surveys and process solutions
Paper Machine Hood & Air Systems Survey
Each paper machine hood and air systems are unique, requiring a specific approach and understanding of the numerous parameters affecting the production, such as runnability, drying capacity, condensation inside the hood, and the machine room.
Yankee Air System Survey
Yankee air systems are highly energy-intensive and should routinely be checked to ensure they run at an optimal level. A proper hood balance ensures maximum thermal efficiency. Yankee surveys result in significant savings in burner fuel and fan horsepower consumption (8% on average).
Machine Room Ventilation Survey
Our machine room survey covers testing and inspection of all air systems, including a detailed maintenance plan with recommendations on improving room air conditions. Poorly ventilated paper machine rooms have an adverse effect on the working environment. Machine room ventilation is improved by providing effective:
- Wet end former process exhaust and air change rate requirements
- Room air balance and distribution
Heat Recovery Survey
Minimize your energy consumption by optimizing heat recovery units from your hood and process air systems and identify new opportunities for more heat recovery capacity.
Designed for mill personnel who would like more in-depth knowledge of the various process air systems and understand their modes of operation. Training sessions can be implemented online or onsite.
