Westford, Massachusetts, USA, 25 March 2011 -- Kadant Johnson Systems has expanded its audit services for dryer systems to now include water management studies for the wet end of the paper machine. The wet end water system audit service consists of a comprehensive evaluation of paper machine water systems, showering, and white water reuse.
"We are very encouraged by the positive responses that we have already received to this new offering from paper mills that are trying to reduce energy and water consumption," said Ken Hill, president of Kadant Johnson Systems. "Because paper drying and water systems are two primary areas of steam use during paper production, the addition of water system audits to our product line offers our customers greater insights into total paper machine steam use and was a natural extension of our dryer and steam system audit services."
The wet end optimization studies are offered in Canada by Kadant Canada.
