Historically, Paper Machine Yankees and dryers have been fabricated from cast iron, but in most recent years there has been growing acceptance in utilizing steel, a competitive alternative material for this application.
With this change in material of fabrication comes an increasing need to reevaluate the management of risks associated with this equipment.
This white paper reviews the specialized service that these vessels operate under, the advantages and disadvantages of different materials in their fabrication and the risks and exposures that each material presents. Also explored in this paper are current best practices for managing the risks of steel dryers, specifically through routine inspections and a Managed System.
