Reduce energy consumption with enzymes

Over the last decade tissue manufacturers have been placed under increasing pressure to reduce energy consumption and subsequently their carbon footprint. The refiner’s electrical load on a modern tissue machine can be up to up to 33% of the total machine draw. Refining is a significant electrical cost driver in areas with high energy costs, and energy costs are politically driven to increase over the next decade.

With Maximyze® FME you could substantially reduce the mill’s energy costs and CO2 footprint

Reduced refining energy plays a positive impact in improved drainage, and subsequently advantages can be taken in reduced Yankee/hood energy while maintaining speed or taking the drying capacity to increase productivity which then reduces the kWh/ton figure.

The energy journey still continues in respect to the caliper/bulk increase that would be a result of less refining. Should this be an increase beyond target values, then increased reel speed would be a benefit that would translate into a very minor increment to energy consumption but for a large reward in production output that once more would reduce the kWh/ton figure.
