  1. 1. Through air drying The influence of formation and pulp type on non-uniform drying and air flow

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Aron Tysén; Karlstads universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drying; Dewatering; Water removal; Moisture; Non-uniformity; Variability; Tissue; TAD; Through air drying; Thermography; Formation; Pulp; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The removal of water is an integral part of tissue paper production. Through air drying (TAD) is used for water removal when producing premium tissue grade products, however, at the price of higher energy demand. A better understanding of TAD may therefore lower the energy demand. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development towards an efficient and sustainable biofuel drying
