The Yankee-Hood dryer is the crucial section of the paper machine due to the consumption of energy. As a consequence of continuously increasing energy costs, determination of the proper operating conditions is essential to operate the tissue machine in the most efficient and economic means while ensuring paper quality. The objective of this study is to evaluate the Yankee-Hood dryer in 'lpekkagit' tissue paper factory, set the mass and energy balances and make optimization studies in order to achieve the desired production rate whilst keeping the drying parameters within limits at the minimum energy costs.
