PrimeDry Hood HT, PrimeDry Hood TT
Gas or oil heated Yankee hood
A high-performance hood is today a must on all Yankees in order to achieve maximum production at the lowest cost. It is estimated that the sheet contact with the Yankee itself accounts for about 30-50% of total drying, while the hot air impinged by the hood provides the remaining 50-70%. Depending upon the fuel source available, ANDRITZ supplies oil- or gas-heated hoods that typically operate in a range of 530° C (PrimeDry Hood HT) to 650° C (PrimeDry Hood TT).
